Break the Silence: End five decades of Impunity in Indonesia


One of the worst mass killings in modern days followed a coup by the late Indonesian dictator General Suharto. Despite moves toward democracy, the history of the 1965-66 massacres (up to a million killed in a year) is actively silenced by or with approval of the government. Oscar-nominated documentary “The Look of Silence” vividly examines this problem through eyes and agony of a man who learns painful details of his older brother’s brutal murder.
