CAIRO - 7 May 2017:
Catch award-winning documentary The Act of Killing
tonight at Room Art Space & Café in Garden City.
When the documentary was first released in cinemas in 2013, critics were quick to praise the film and it went on to win several awards. The documentary tackles the Indonesian mass killings of communist sympathizers, ethnic Chinese and alleged leftists in the 1960s.
The genocide has been largely overlooked by the international community—that is until director Joshua Oppenheimer traveled to Indonesia and challenged the former death squad leaders to reenact the killings in any way they saw fit, from Hollywood-like scenes to over-the-top musical numbers.
Screening starts at 8 p.m. and there is a minimum order of LE 30. For more information, click
