Director Joshua Oppenheimer will show and discuss his award-winning 2014 documentary, The Look of Silence, at the U.S. Institute of Peace on July 14 from 2-4:30pm. His film explores one of the 20th century’s deadliest atrocities, still largely hidden after 50 years—Indonesia’s 1965 army-led purge and killing of as many as 1 million people accused of communist sympathies. Oppenheimer’s previous film about the purge, The Act of Killing, was nominated for the 2013 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. This event is co-sponsored by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.
