The Act of Killing is a disturbing new documentary by Joshua Oppenheimer based on the 1965 Indonesian genocide. Joshua managed to track down the actual executioner, Anwar Congo, who had personally executed at least 1000 people, (mostly by strangulation by wire) and challenged him to recreate the horrific massacre scenes for the film.
The subject of this film is one that is very close to our hearts. We are eagerly awaiting for the film to be screened on our shores soon. Meanwhile, have a look at the trailer below.
