Description

2016 Oscar® Nominees: See all five of the 2016 documentary feature nominees.

Joshua Oppenheimer’s Oscar®-nominated The Act of Killing has been heralded as one of the greatest documentaries of all time. In his equally powerful follow-up, The Look of Silence, Oppenheimer explores what it is like to be a survivor in a world built on fear and lies. In Indonesia, a country where unrepentant death squad leaders live side-by-side with the families of their victims, one man decides to do the unimaginable: confront them. While testing their eyesight, the village optometrist Adi questions these powerful men about their memories and motives, and asks that they take responsibility for their actions. The result is a complex and gripping look at what it means to break 50 years of suffocating silence.

In Indonesian, with English subtitles.
