The Act of Killing

Director : Joshua Oppenheimer, Christine Cynn and Anonymous


When Joshua Oppenheimer went to Indonesia to produce a documentary on the Death Squads who tortured and killed over a million communists in the mid-60s, he did not expect that the survivors would be too scared to talk. On the other hand, former executioners, who were still protected by a corrupt administration, easily shared their memories and even proposed to replay the abuses they perpetrated in their early years. The Act of Killing will take you on a dizzying ride into the abyss of inhumanity.
