The Act of Killing (2012)
Garwood Lecture Theatre |
UCL | Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
In our film and discussion series "Portraying Perpetrators" we consider the representation of perpetrators in documentary and feature films. Key questions that we will explore include: what is meant by the term ‘perpetrator’; the legacy of perpetrators over the generations; how perpetrators narrate their own actions; the place of individual agency and social mobilization in defining a perpetrator; and, crucially, the implications of our interest in and fascination with perpetrators.
We are showing the widely celebrated documentary "The Act of Killing", showing re-enactments of killings by former members of Indonesian death squads.
The film series is co-organized with the UCL European Institute.
