The Look of Silence in cinemas from today!

The Look of Silence opens in cinemas today after a hugely successful launch as last week's Opening Night Film at Sheffield Doc/Fest. The film is the companion piece to BAFTA-winning The Act of Killing and is already being talked about as the must-see film of 2015.
In the film, Adi Rukun is determined to break the spell of silence and fear under which the survivors of the 1965 Indonesian genocide live, and so confronts the men responsible for his brother’s murder – something unimaginable in a country where killers remain in power.


This Sunday, Louis Theroux will be hosting a special screening and Q&A for The Look of Silence with director Joshua Oppenheimer, broadcast live via satellite to 90+ cinemas across the UK and Ireland. Audiences around the country will be invited to send in their questions using #lookofsilence
