In advance of the event, participants will independently view Joshua Oppenheimer’s documentary, The Look of Silence, which follows Adi Rukun as he confronts the people who killed his brother during Indonesia’s 65 Massacres. During the event, Antonius Made Tony Supriatma (Yusof Ishak Institute) and Degung Santikarma (Taman 65) will guide discussion.
