The Look Of Silence + Satellite Q&A Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

  • Running time133 minutes
  • GenreDocumentary

This screening will be followed by a live satellite Q&A with director Joshua Oppenheimer hosted by Louis Theroux.

Documentarian Oppenheimer’s stunning follow-up to The Act Of Killing returns to the bloodstained legacy of Indonesia’s 1965 genocide. The Look Of Silence begins with the story of Ramli, one of thousands slaughtered during the ‘anti-Communist’ purges. His brother Adi, an optician, visits former executioners to conduct eye examinations. He bravely confronts the perpetrators – including Ramli’s killer – in gut-wrenching exchanges. Oppenheimer’s extraordinary film sensitively explores the repercussions of the violence, presenting powerful testimony from victims’ families and those affected.
