P.O.V. Film Series Screens " The Act of Killing" at Tapp's Arts Center
Joshua Oppenheimer’s “The Act of Killing” is a film about the 1965 U.S.-backed Indonesian military coup and the resulting genocide which killed an estimated 1 million people. Mixing elements of documentary and narrative, Oppenheimer interviews many of the major players involved in the massacre, asking them to fictionalize their atrocities as staged reenactments. The result is a surreal, darkly comic, and frightening examination of the human spirit.
P.O.V. meets each MONTH in the Skyline Room.
