THE ACT OF KILLING

the act of killing
Released yesterday on DVD, The Act of Killing is a daring and haunting documentary, definitely not for the faint of heart. “When the government of Indonesia was overthrown by the military in 1965, Anwar and his friends were promoted from small-time gangsters who sold movie theatre tickets on the black market to death squad leaders. They helped the army kill more than one million alleged communists, ethnic Chinese, and intellectuals in less than a year”. After the cut, check out executive producers Werner Herzog and Errol Morris discuss the film with Vice.
