The Look of Silence

Event Details

We’re partnering with Alamo Drafthouse and Deep Vellum Publishing to bring you The Look of Silence, 2016 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature. The film will include an exclusive Q&A with author Leila Chudori, Indonesia’s most prominent and outspoken female author & journalist.

The Look of Silence is Joshua Oppenheimer’s powerful companion piece to the Oscar®-nominated The Act of Killing. Through Oppenheimer’s footage of perpetrators of the 1965 Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered, as well as the identities of the killers. The documentary focuses on the youngest son, an optometrist named Adi, who decides to break the suffocating spell of submission and terror by doing something unimaginable in a society where the murderers remain in power: he confronts the men who killed his brother and, while testing their eyesight, asks them to accept responsibility for their actions. This unprecedented film initiates and bears witness to the collapse of fifty years of silence.

Tickets for this special screening are $5 in advance, which will transfer into a $5 voucher for food or drink in the theater during the show.
