• Here at GiLyd we're proud to have been part of making Joshua Oppenheimer’s “the look of silence”, the follow-up to the 2012 documentary “The Act of Killing”.

    The film documents the life of Adi, whose oldest brother was brutally murdered during the the 1965 Suharto coup. Adi is one of the many family members who to this day still live in the villages where the killing of their loved ones took place, often ruled over by the men who were in charge of the slaughter. 

    He has witnessed the murderer of his brother talking about the killing in some of Oppenheimer's footage and has decided to hunt down and confront those responsible. Using his daytime job as an optician and glasses salesman, Adi travels the back roads and gives eye tests to the men while teasing out the boasts and memories of the elderly murderers.
