It began as a game in the name of science. Twenty men - eight 'guards' and twelve 'prisoners' - in an intense two week investigation into aggressive behaviour in a simulated prison environment. It soon became a quest to survive.
Oliver Hirschbiegel's debut feature is a resonant, hard hitting and highly provocative look at the abuse of power and the corruption of authority, based on Mario Giordano's novel "The Experiment - Black Box". Masterfully shot with the use of hidden cameras, the film builds to a bloody and thrilling climax.
Nominated as the German contender for the Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards, The Experiment features a no holds barred performance by Moritz Bleibtreu (Run Lola Run) as Tarek, a heroic undercover journalist who stands up against the brutalities inflicted by the would-be guards.
