La Plata County Thrive! Living Wage Coalition is hosting the premier Durango screening of the film “The Look of Silence” on Sunday night at Animas City Theatre.
The film, directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Joshua Oppenheimer, brings to light the mass killings targeting communists in Indonesia in 1965-66 by focusing on the youngest son of a family who had another son who was murdered. The surviving son, an optometrist named Adi, confronts the men who killed his brother – an unthinkably brave act given the fact that the murderers remain in power. This movie serves as a companion piece to Oppenheimer’s film “The Act of Killing.”
The event starts at 4:30 with food and drinks, with the movie starting at 5. After the film, there will be a message from the director and a discussion.
Tickets are $25, with proceeds going to support Thrive!, and you can get yours at ACT or by calling 903-0957.
