The Look of Silence film screening in Milton Keynes – Sun 14 June

The Look of Silence is the companion piece to the 2013 BAFTA-Winning documentary ‘The Act of Killing’. Through Director Joshua Oppenheimer’s work filming perpetrators of the Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers 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. This screening will be followed by a live satellite Q&A with Director Joshua Oppenheimer, hosted by Louis Theroux. Here you can see the trailer: http://www.thelookofsilence.co.uk/trailer And here is the blog piece by Amnesty UK: Amnesty UK: If you do one thing on June 14th go and see The Look of Silence Here is the best link to share with your group http://www2.cineworld.co.uk/whatson/the-look-of-silence-live-q-and-a?cinema=milton-keynes Summary: New Human Rights Film, ‘The Look of Silence’ (Indonesia) + Q&A with Director Joshua Oppenheimer, hosted by
