Award-Winning Film Director Joshua Oppenheimer at GSG-REG organized Summer School on Transitional Justice & the Politics of Memory

10 mei 2017

Against the backdrop of efforts to deal with the past in Southeast Asia, the summer school on TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE & THE POLITICS OF MEMORY (co-organized by GSG-REG at the island of Cres in Croatia) is organizing film screenings of two documentaries, The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence . These films depict the situation in Indonesia, where the Sukarno regime killed and tortured hundreds of thousands of civilians accusing them of being political dissidents conspiring with communists during the 1960s. US filmmaker, Joshua Oppenheimer, rose public awareness about these atrocities through these two excellent, eye-opening documentaries. The summer school organizers invited the director to speak to the students about the challenges producing the footage as well as the current situation in the country and the difficult process that Indonesian society is still facing to confront this dark chapter in history.
