Synopsis:
Joshua Oppenheimer is one of the world's most renowned documentary filmmakers. His multi award-winning films 'The Act of Killing' (2012) and 'The Look of Silence' (2014) have challenged and redefined ideas about the very nature of documentary cinema. Presented here for the first time is the complete cycle of Joshua Oppenheimer's early works. These films do not simply record or document facts; they are playful, artistic, and philosophical. Often confrontational, and frequently disquieting, they reveal how Oppenheimer's instinct for social justice has developed into a fully-fledged art form.

Spoiler Alert

Some truly majestic and deep moments amongst this collection of short films from the director of "the act of killing". a few are quite Art school but still high high quality- a great selection of subjects , archived footage and sound clips. Political, experimental, intriguing and revealing.
