The act ok killing
Documentaire, 2012, Danemark/Norvège/Royaume-Uni, un film de Joshua Oppenheimer

Synopsis (wikipédia) : Le film évoque le mouvement du 30 septembre 1965 en Indonésie ainsi que les massacres qui ont suivi, et qui ont causé la mort de 500 000 à un million de personnes. La parole est donnée aux auteurs de ces massacres, en particulier Anwar Congo et Adi Zulkadry, membres des escadrons de la mort. À lui seul, Anwar Congo a assassiné environ 1 000 personnes, généralement en les étranglant avec un câble. Il est aujourd'hui un des fondateurs du groupe paramilitaire d'extrême droite indonésien Pemuda Pancasila, et n'a jamais été inquiété pour ses crimes. Lorsqu'ils y sont invités par le réalisateur, Anwar et ses amis reconstituent volontiers les tueries pour les caméras, où ils évoquent leurs souvenirs et leurs sentiments. Les scènes sont reproduites dans le style de leurs films favoris : film de gangster, western et film musical. Certains des amis d'Anwar admettent devant la caméra qu'ils ont mal agi. D'autres s'inquiètent plutôt des conséquences du film sur leur image publique.
