The Look of Silence

Whereas his first film was a shocking and revelatory look at a forgotten chapter in world history from the point of view of the culprits, this sequel documentary looks through the eyes of the victims. With this companion piece, Joshua Oppenheimer focuses on Adi Rukun – an ophthalmologist whose brother was killed by the militia. The film remembers the atrocities through Adi’s eyes, as he in turn reflects on the different ways his people see, or neglect to see, one of the most troubling acts in all of human history.
