Oxford Brookes Documentary Club: The Look of Silence
Through Joshua Oppenheimer’s work filming perpetrators of the 1960s anti-communist Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discover how their son was murdered and the identity of the men who killed him. The youngest brother is determined to break the spell of silence and fear under which the survivors live, and so confronts the men responsible for his brother’s murder – something unimaginable in a country where killers remain in power.
The screening will take place at the JHB Lecture Theatre in the John Henry Brookes building at Oxford Brookes university in headington. The screening is FREE and kicks off at 7pm.
