The Erlkings

The Erlkings (Die Erlkönige) explores the inner lives of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the perpetrators of the Columbine High School Massacre.  Built from real quotes from material left by the boys- journal writings, school assignments, chat room conversations, and home videos - it combines original scenes with the plethora of recorded information that they left behind.  Perhaps insight into the violent American psyche that continues to plague our schools can be found through the words of those most responsible.
