Killing for Love

The Story of Jens Soering and Elizabeth haysom

During the research for the documentary film “Killing for Love” materials from more than 30 years has been collected. Already in the beginning of the production of the film, the idea for an additional, sustainable preparation of content on the Internet that could not be fully processed in the film was born.

The innumerable pieces of evidence, diaries, love letters, police files, crime scene photos, court documents, the video material from the court cases, the many interviews with contemporary witnesses, the newspaper articles and TV reports have been prepared in various forms, as photo collages or bonus videos and as an extensive news archive to give the user a deep insight into the case.

This extensive original material have been exclusively prepared for the film’s website to make them available to the viewer free of charge as an additional service to the film. It provides a deep insight into the case of Jens Soering. It is a reappraisal that far exceeds the possibilities of a documentary film. The aim of the second screen evaluation on the website is to make the very complex and complicated story accessible to the user in a simple, fast and clear way.

Production companies and distibutors unfortunately lack suitable funding models for such extensive additional second screen offerings in the Internet. This is because of the still experimental stage of such productions of Second Screen evaluations. We believe that in this project the medium documentary film is connected in so far unique kind with the new media.
