Joshua Oppenheimer's Oscar®-nominated The Look of Silence
is the incredible story of a man confronting his brother's killers and demanding they accept responsibility for their crimes. Adi, an optometrist who survived the 1965 Indonesian genocide, takesÂ this unimaginable stepÂ in a society where murderers remain in power. To break the spell of submission and terror, he forces them, and us, to reckon with his country's dark history. A companion piece to Oppenheimer's The Act of Killing
, also an Oscar nominee, The Look of Silence
has been hailed as a "masterpiece" by The New York TimesÂ for bearingÂ witness to the collapse of 50 years of silence. Winner, Grand Jury Prize, Critics Prize and Human Rights Award, 2014 Venice Film Festival.
