‘The Act of Killing’ in Groningen
Tonight at Vera Zienema, Groningen at 21.00 hrs the documentary The Act of Killing. In a country where killers are celebrated as heroes, the filmmakers challenge unrepentant death squad leaders to dramatise their role in genocide. The hallucinatory result is a cinematic fever dream, an unsettling journey deep into the imaginations of Indonesian mass-murderers and the shockingly banal regime of corruption and impunity they inhabit.
