In what will definitely not be considered a pro-tourism film for the country of Indonesia, we discuss the horrors on display in the film, the Act of Killing. The documentary follows a few of the executioners from the Indonesian genocide, where more than a million people were slaughtered, as they recreate their crimes to make a film of their own celebrating their actions some 45 years later. The true horror here is the mindset that these killers have maintained for half a lifetime and only through reliving the experience do they even begin to manifest humanity or exhibit any repentance for their actions.
We bring on special guest, Hinton Bowers who will be contributing as a writer for this site to talk about this movie, which was his suggestion for this show.
Look for articles from Hinton here in the coming weeks.
