In the acclaimed documentary "The Look of Silence," Joshua Oppenheimer explores the aftereffects of the 1965 genocide in Indonesia.

The camera follows Adi, an Indonesian optometrist, as he confronts the men who murdered his brother Ramli, two years before Adi was born. VOA's Penelope Poulou has more.
