The Act of Killing

Not Coming
22 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I’m not sure that I saw anyone walk out during the packed screening of The Act of Killing at IFFB this year. And while no one applauded at the end of the film, that’s not unheard of after a difficult or downbeat picture has played.

Film Guide

De daders zijn hier echter nooit voor bestraft. Documentairemaker Oppenheimer zocht voor het prijzenwinnende ‘The act of killing’ enkele oude mannen op die destijds betrokken waren bij de doodseskaders.

  • Excerpt: Na zijn première vorige maand op het Movies that Matter-festival toert shockdoc The Act of Killing nu door de filmtheaters. Soeharto's doodseskaders spelen hun verleden na. Re-enactment is een beproefde methode om traumatische gebeurtenissen een documentaire vorm te geven.
