‘Ted K’: First Clip Of Berlin Film Festival Drama About Unabomber Ted Kaczynski

Ted K

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s first footage from Berlin Film Festival entry Ted K, writer-director Tony Stone’s true crime drama starring Sharlto Copley (District 9) as the ‘Unabomber’ Ted Kaczynski.

The film tracks a particular period in the life of Kaczynski, more widely known as the Unabomber, and draws from his personal diaries and accounts from those who knew him during his life in hiding in a simple wooden cabin in the mountains of Montana.

The film will play in the Panorama section of this year’s largely digital Berlinale.

According to the producers, a number of the film’s supporting cast are non-professional locals, some of whom knew Kaczynski, and the production worked closely with his former neighbors and employers to corroborate research and paint an authentic picture of the man.

Stone built a recreation of Kaczynski’s cabin on its original site, and production made use of every structure and object that Kaczynski left behind as part of the 60-day shoot over four seasons in Montana.

Ted K is Stone’s third feature after his 2009 pic Severed Ways and the 2016 documentary Peter and The Farm. Both films were released by Magnolia Pictures.
