THE LOOK OF SILENCE
99 min
Director: Joshua Oppenheimer
Producer: Signe Byrge Sørensen

About the film:

An Indonesian man with a communist background named Ramli was brutally murdered when the "Communist" purge occurred in 1965. His remaining family members lived in fear and silence until the making of this documentary. Adi, a brother of his, decided to revisit the horrific incident and visited the men who were responsible for the killings and one survivor of the purge. These meetings uncovered sadistic details of the murders and exposed raw emotions and reactions of the killers' family members about what happened in the past - much to Adi's disappointment.

The director:

Joshua Oppenheimer (born September 23, 1974) is an American-born British film director based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Best known for his Oscar-nominated films The Act of Killing (2012) and The Look of Silence (2014), Oppenheimer is a 2014 recipient of the MacArthur "Genius" Award and a 1997 Marshall Scholar.

Price: 140 DKK incl. welcome drink, film, dinner, debate and desert.
