The Act of Killing Film Screening

Rizky Rahadianto ’15 announces:

“This might be the most important documentary ever” – The Daily Mail
“I have not seen a film as powerful, surreal, and frightening in at least a decade… it is unprecedented in the history of cinema.” – Werner Herzog
“Joshua Oppenheimer has reset the bar for tragi-comedy. As in, don’t even bother trying, Hollywood. Ever again.” Indiewire

One of the most talked about, controversial, and acclaimed films of the summer calendar is coming to the Film Series for free. Oppenheimer’s disturbing documentary centers around two Indonesian ex-squad leaders reenacting their 1960s genocidal atrocities. But there’s a twist: protected under the state and now holding positions of political power, they believe themselves to be national heroes, their reenactments exuding at first a deeply unsettling sense of pride and moral assuredness until the men slowly begin to confront their crimes.

It will leave you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. What’s more, there will be an exclusive interview with the director presented before the film (made possible by co-sponsor LinkAsia) and a panel with professor Ronald Jenkins and Indonesian students after the film.

You. Don’t. Wanna. Miss. It.
