Oppenheimer’s The Act of Killing, that centres on Indonesian death squad leaders who killed thousands of Communists in the 1960s, was recently awarded a BAFTA, and has been nominated for an Oscar for best documentary.

According to the documentary website, Oppenheimer had spent more than a decade with “militias, death squads and their victims to explore the relationship between political violence and the public imagination”.
