Tony Stone’s latest feature TED K is a kaleidoscopic true crime journey into the life of one of America’s most complex and eccentric killers. TED K stars Sharlto Copley (District 9) and is the follow up to Stone’s critically acclaimed documentary Peter and the Farm.
Ted lives a life of almost complete seclusion in a simple wooden cabin in the mountains of Montana. But then this former university professor, who despises modern society and its faith in technology, becomes radicalised. What begins with local acts of sabotage, ends with deadly bomb attacks. To the outside world, Ted K becomes known as the Unabomber. Based on Ted Kaczynski’s diaries and writings, It features a tour-de-force performance from Sharlto Copley who portrays the complexity of this unique outsider, raging at the forces of both the inescapable technological society that plagues him and his own inner demons.
A uniquely authentic immersive experience, Stone used FBI photographs to forensically recreate his world in every detail. Stone built a recreation of Kaczynski’s cabin on its original site and terrain, 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.
