Jagal 2012
Description: In a zone where assassins are celebrated as heroes, these filmmakers challenge unrepentant death-squad leaders to dramatize their role in genocide. The effect is a surreal, cinematic journey, not only into the memories and imaginations of mass murderers, but also into a frighteningly banal regime of corruption and impunity.
Released: 08 Nov 2012 Director: Joshua Oppenheimer, Anonymous(co-director), Christine Cynn(co-director) Writers: N/A Actors: Anwar Congo, Herman Koto, Syamsul Arifin, Ibrahim Sinik Genres: Documentary, Crime

Without a Fight #

Released 4/6/2012

Description: Without a War is a detail length documentary movie that explores how soccer can facilitate social change in Kibera, one of Africa's biggest slums.

The movie provides a glimpse-often a very positive one-into an Africa several have seen. It attempts to break stereotypes associated with folks who live in extreme poverty while depicting sports as a software that should be used to prevent violence among at-risk youth. The movie made its Globe Premiere at the 11 MM Festival in Berlin, Germany in March 2012 and its North American Premiere at the Full Frame Documentary Festival in Durham, NC in April 2012. - Written by Beth-Ann Kutchma

Aliens from Spaceship Earth #

Released 1/1/1977

Description: Tries to prove that all nice boys of the past were now aliens. While the aliens in this movie may seem to be quite human, one gotta realize that this movie is dealing with close encounters of the fourth kind. An inner zone adventure triggered by the drug culture and rebellion of the sixties, and the non-violent find for self that continues among folks in today's culture. Should this be due to some influence from a higher spiritual consciousness? The world's alien leaders are well represented in this film: Baba Muktananda, Swami Satchidananda, A. C. Bhaktivedanta, Guru Maharaj Ji, Yoga Bhahan, Sri Sathya, Sai Baba, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Father Yod, Baba Ram Das, and well-known personalities who show their views on seeking their own terrestrial individuality. Whether inspired by a more highly evolved race than earthlings, or from a visit millions of years ago by zone aliens, Aliens from Spaceship World are causing nice changes on our planet today.

Description: Since the dawn of history, folks have believed in the existence of some form of ghosts. THE TWILIGHT HOUR is an unsettling encounter with the Celtic ruins, foreboding estates and restless spirits that haunt the landscape of Ireland.

His travels lead him to the country's most notorious properties, including Castle Leslie, where Sir John Leslie shares his ancestor's accounts of hauntings, as well as his own private encounters with ghosts. He wanders the creaking corridors of a long-forsaken mansion known as the most relentlessly haunted house in Ireland, and visits such weird and desolate spots as The Hill of the Witch in County Meath. The chilling effect has been described as "an atmospheric tour de force".

Jagal Reviews:

I cannot support the urge not to write something that I should tell I truly know and familiar with. I was born in the exact town where this youth organization stronghold (Pemuda Pancasila) is based actually and where all the killing had taken zone in the past. I am no stranger to all the crimes they did back then or do now.Back to where it all started on the 30th of September 1965, which marked the rebellion by the Communist Party. Seven of the highly ranked military generals were kidnapped, tortured and murdered then piled in an old well by what the history told to be the communist starting coup d état. (No evidences of torturing as accused, only military style execution resulted from the autopsies of the remains and also no evidence it was done by the communist party member till now).The name Pemuda Pancasila (Youth of Pancasila) was then known since youth started to march on the road yelling Pancasila (our nation's philosophy) resisting and seeking for revenge by annihilating communism to its root. Both government and military gave full help resulted in uncontrolled anarchy mob led to boy slaughter and in show day, an organized crime.My Mother was 13 and witnessed their brutalities would say me the horror with fears still should be seen in her eyes. Her brothers would run and hide for their lives in a rice field when Pemuda Pancasila arrived with machetes in military trucks yelling "Pancasila" as their slogan to search and execute anyone who was involved in communist. But all the communist excuses were biased and used only to do what they wanted and to slay whoever they think was communist mostly with no evidence at all.She witnessed her neighbour accused as one of the member of "Gerwani", girl communist organization, being raped, then dragged to the road and beaten to death as an example for others who resist. They looted, ate, drank, and destroyed what they should not take in my mom's store. One word or eye contact showing disrespect would search her ended up beaten to death. Dead bodies and body parts scattered everywhere on the road was a normal view. Not one day went by without anyone getting killed at night. Many were victims of the unproven accusation, terrible farmers who received fertilizer or farming softwares from the communist party would be considered communist while they did not even know anything about what communism is.I felt really sick watching this film yet at the same time I was very thankful finally the entire truth about how this crime organization started and is hiding behind a youth organization actually be told. It disgusted me how they should live with such wonderful crimes and said the storyline so proudly with no regrets and believed in their lies and excuses they made up only to justify their brutality in the past (except Anwar Congo). Some even considered themselves as heroes. Yet I pitied them for being very uneducated and shallow. Imitating what they saw in the western cowboy and Mafia's films thinking they should be meaner and more brutal like it was just some stage in a movie. Are they qualified as human beings?Ps. If you are interested in finding more about their brutalities and violence, you can search videos in youtube recently, they are involved in a riot with another organization and Police.


It seems almost trivial to "rate" a film that is this necessary but like some of the tothers i have given it a 10 because folks need to see it.I have never been as fully chilled by a movie in my life, and I have seen plenty of brutal documentaries. The atrocities committed by the Indonesian death squads, and so vividly re-enacted, are not simple to watch and I expect that many folks would rather just turn away and ignore them, but you owe it to yourselves to sit through them.I have just complete reading Steven Pinker's perfect ebook The Better Angels of Our Nature in which he argues that humanity is far less violent actually than we have ever been. That may be so, but if you are looking for a compelling counter-argument you can begin with this film. I can assure that that you will never forget it.


Act of Killing (Jagal) is awesome: a documentary movie showing true algojos (assassins) who killed many PKI (communist party members/supporters), in their own words. It's special storyline saying has successfully made necessary people, including actual parliament members, admitting brutality, killing and on-going premanism (thuggery) that's clearly supported by the government, also in their own words, to the camera. Director Joshua Oppenheimer approached the ex-algojo, Anwar Congo and his buddies, to enjoy in a silly movie, even in woman's dress, without knowing that the true film is now the daily conversation where he was proudly saying n showing what he has done in 65. The government assigned military and preman to help the coup-de-tat, raping and killing many innocents in the name of anti-PKI. The movie's honest, satire and unprovocative documentation has ironically made us laugh and cry at the same time. Reality does bite: folks do what they think is right, and create it right for them, no matter how wrong it is. Why? Because history is written by the winners. All Indonesian production squad remain anonymous and the film is not publicly distributed in Indonesia.
