Deconstruction of a genocide

Depicting the genocide in Indonesia in 1965 from the point of view of the perpetrators, “The Act of Killing” has caused an uproar in Indonesia and the West. “If you want to understand where genocide comes from, you have to find out what drives the perpetrators,” says Signe Byrge Sørensen, the film’s Danish producer.
