Imagine looking your brother’s murderer in the eye. What would you say, when the killers still control the country? Joshua Oppenheimer’s companion piece to the Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing follows an optometrist, Adi, who seeks out the men responsible for his older brother’s death and asks them to acknowledge their responsibility, putting his own safety on a knife-edge.
