Film and video screenings

The Look of Silence

SAT, Feb 20, 2016
1–3:30 pm

Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

Filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer's compelling 2014 documentary The Look of Silence focuses on a family of survivors of the 1965 Indonesian genocide and their discovery of how their son was murdered, along with the identity of his killers. This unprecedented film, a companion piece to the Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing (2012), initiates and bears witness to the collapse of fifty years of silence. The film screening is followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.

This event is part of a series of public events, lectures, and talks organized in tandem with ​Laura Poitras: Astro Noise​.

Event tickets are required ($8 adults; $6 members; students and seniors).
