Description:

In this chilling and inventive documentary set in Indonesia, the filmmakers examine a country where death squad leaders are celebrated as heroes, challenging them to reenact their real-life mass-killings in the style of the American movies they love. The Act of Killing is an award-winning documentary directed by Joshua Oppenheimer and executive produced by Errol Morris and Werner Herzog.

Director Joshua Oppenheimer will be in attendance to give a lecture and participate in an audience discussion.

FREE and Open to the public. A brief reception with refreshments will follow the film screening.
