Watch a Stunning Scene From the Follow-Up to The Act of Killing


Joshua Oppenheimer's Oscar-nominated documentary The Act of Killing was an impressive, indelible work that explored the 1965 genocide in Indonesia by convincing the perpetrators to take part in re-creations. Now Oppenheimer has produced a companion piece to that film, titled The Look of Silence, that follows one family left irrevocably broken by the killings. The protagonist, an optometrist named Adi, is determined to confront the men who slaughtered his brother, and in this powerful exclusive scene, he asks his mother Rohani to describe what it's like to live in a village where she must see her son's unpunished murderers every day. Trust us, this one will knock the wind out of you. The Look of Silence is out in select theaters July 17.
