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.

Unheard of before, this film starts the ball rolling and bears witness to the fall of 50 years of silence and oppression that has ruled the lives of surviving families.


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.

Don't miss out on this compelling, daring doco. Book your tickets now. Read more on the official film website. You can also 'like' the Facebook page of the HRAFF to stay updated.
