Thursday’s 6.30pm: The Act of Killing by Joshua Oppenheimer
Official selection 2012 Toronto International Film Festival & Winner of 2013 Berlin Film Festival Panorama Audience Award – documentary film
The film encapsulates years of Indonesian genocide, suffering, and repression into the story of one its most lethal and efficient killers, Anwar Congo. In 1965, when the Indonesian government was overthrown by the military, Anwar and his cohorts were promoted from small-time gangsters who sold movie-theater tickets on the black market to death-squad leaders. Anwar’s gang helped the army kill more than one million alleged Communists, ethnic Chinese, and intellectuals in less than a year.
Discussant: Alice Nderitu, board member at Independent Medico-Legal Unit (IMLU).
