Joshua Oppenheimer, Director, The Act of Killing.

In a country where killers are celebrated as heroes, the filmmaker’s challenge unrepentant death squad leaders to dramatise their role in genocide in Indonesia. The hallucinatory result is a cinematic fever dream, an unsettling journey deep into the imaginations of mass murderers and the shockingly banal regime of corruption and impunity they inhabit.
