In a society terrorized into silence, the brother of a 1960s Indonesian genocide victim learns the identity of his murderers and confronts them.
Director Joshua Oppenheimer returns to the subject of the Indonesian genocide following 2011’s The Act of Killing with an even more vital piece of reportage. The Look of Silence is a disturbing séance for an erased history, conjuring up the repressed nightmares of a weary, unstable nation.
