'The Look of Silence', a film about Indonesia, is playing in Cinemas in London.
The Look of Silence is the companion piece to the Protected content 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.
The film is being shown in the London ICA, Picturehouse Central and Hackney Picturehouse, Curzon Soho, London Phoenix East Finchley, Regent Street Cinema and Tricycle Cinema.
