Seasonal Special Happenings

The Look of Silence

When: Fri., Sept. 18 2015

Director Joshua Oppenheimer raised eyebrows with his 2012 documentary The Act of Killing, a film about the Indonesian killings of 1965–66 that Oppenheimer has called “a documentary of the imagination.” In last year’s companion piece, The Look of Silence, he focuses on an Indonesian optician who confronts the rightwing thugs responsible for the death of his older brother during the country’s anti-communist purge of the 1960s. It’s compelling stuff. The movie screens tonight at 7:15 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
