        Joshua Oppenheimer, Documentary Filmmaker | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2014 MacArthur Fellow Joshua Oppenheimer talks about the power of filmmaking to document and illuminate the social, psychological, and emotional dimensions of controversial subjects. His 2012 film, The Act of Killing, focused on the 1965 rise of U.S.-backed, Indonesian President Suharto that led to the massacre of as many as two million citizens. Oppenheimer’s film revisits this event through interviews with former death squad members who describe and reenact their acts of violence. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
