#50: The Act of Killing [2012]

In Indonesia 1965, after a failed coup d’état which led to the rise of president Suharto, state sanctioned death squads exterminated at least half a million suspected communists.The Act of Killing follows members of such unit as they try to make a movie chronicling their murderous adventures.  It is absolutely gripping, deeply offensive and utterly fascinating.  If you, or your proxy, is located in Norway, you can watch it at http://tv.nrk.no/program/koid76002309/the-act-of-killing.
