Directed by Emil Chiaberi and produced by Oscar and Emmy winner James Moll, this feature-length documentary examines the growing phenomenon of spree killings in the United States.
The film explores the basic question of what brings a seemingly normal person to the point of committing mass murder. It examines the complex interplay of personal and societal factors leading up to incidents of workplace massacres, starting with the earliest post office massacre in 1986.
What drives people to kill this way, what pushes them over the edge? Why all the bloodshed, and why now? And what is it about US Postal Service that made it a poster boy for workplace massacres? America has witnessed widespread changes over the last 50-years, along with a profound transformation of the relationship between the individual and society. Could this shift have resulted in unseen forces, both within the workplace and outside of it, that are propelling this epidemic of mass murder?
The film shows how transformation of the US Postal Service from a government agency into a corporation a created stressful workplace environment filled with increasingly anxious and unhappy employees and, eventually, resulted in unprecedented bloodshed. But this transformation hasnt occurred in a vacuum. It also represents the world outside the post office corporate America itself. Whether inside a cubicle, behind a counter or on the factory floor the modern-day workplace has become a nerve-racking place. As Murder by Proxy: How America Went Postal explores the startling history of the going postal phenomenon, the film also follows the story of two extraordinary men brought together by their selfless dedication to defending the rights of ordinary American workers. Ultimately, it provides a thorough and provocative examination into the increasing number of mass murders in the United States, examining how and why they continue to occur, and what this phenomenon might lead to in the future.
