Expected to Attend: Joshua Oppenheimer (Nov 13th only)

Director Joshua Oppenheimer continues the masterful exploration of Indonesia’s legacy of violence that began with his Oscar-nominated documentary The Act of Killing. This new work stands on its own. The key figure is Adi, whose older brother was murdered five decades ago. As a village optometrist, Adi uses his profession to confront the families of the killers. This morally complex, exquisitely crafted work earned the support of Werner Herzog and Errol Morris as executive producers. Courtesy of Drafthouse Films and Participant Media.

DOC NYC will admit AMPAS members and a guest to any film screening in the festival’s “Short List” section, space permitting. AMPAS members will need to present their membership card at the box office to claim a ticket.
