Murder by Proxy: How America Went Postal is the first documentary to look at the spree-killing phenomenon of years past through the lens of a socio-economic shift that began during the Reagan era.
Murder by Proxy: How America Went Postal explores the point of view that it is the social environment, especially workplace conditions, which is pushing so many people over the edge. The film features interviews with survivors and victims of mass shootings, who openly blame workplace culture for many of these tragedies, and in some cases, amazingly admit sympathy for the killers.
The movie includes many interviews with union steward . He represented Thomas McIlvane, the gunman who took the lives of four postal workers before killing himself in 1991, in a grievance case that had gone to arbitration a few weeks prior to the shootings.
The film is written, produced, and directed by Emil Chiaberi and is co-produced by Oscar and Emmy-winning documentarian James Moll.
Murder by Proxy: How America Went Postal will begin screening theatrically in select cities starting in January, 2012. For more information on the movie, screening dates and times and more, go to: www.murderbyproxyfilm.com
