The Look of Silence is a fundraiser screening presented by the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival (HRAFF). It'll screen at Cinema Nova on Wednesday 25 November 2015 at 7pm. Tickets are $25 per person. All proceeds go towards the 2016 Human Rights Arts and Film Festival.
This exclusive preview screening of Josh Oppenheimer's award-winning documentary is a companion piece to his 2012 Academy Award nominated film, The Act of Killing. It covers the 1965 Indonesian genocide seen through the eyes of the surviving victims. It's a film Oppenheimer wanted to make to stand as a memoriam for all that is destroyed. In a video clip below, hear how he gains access to the subjects.
Since making the films, he won't be going back to Indonesia again. You can read why HERE.
Adi is an optometrist and the youngest son of a family of survivors. He discovers the identities of his brother's killers and decides to face them while testing their eyesight. He asks them to accept responsibility for their actions.
The documentary will be introduced by Tito Ambyo. He's a former Executive Producer of Radio Australia's Indonesian Service and has worked as a journalist in Indonesia. He's currently a lecturer in Journalism at RMIT University.
