Essential Docs: Highlighting some of the best docs of all time.

With the release of Joshua Oppenheimer’s award-winning The Look of Silence, we're bringing back the groundbreaking, Oscar®-nominated Act of Killing. Executive produced by Errol Morris (The Fog Of War) and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), The Act of Killing examines a country where killers are celebrated as heroes and the filmmakers challenge unrepentant death squad leaders to re-enact their real-life mass-killings in the style of the American movies they love. The hallucinatory result is a cinematic fever dream, an unsettling journey deep into the imaginations of mass-murderers and the shockingly banal regime of corruption and impunity they inhabit.

In Indonesian and English, with English subtitles.
