Restaging violence: A Q&A with 'The Act of Killing' director Joshua Oppenheimer

The documentary “The Act of Killing” looks at a bloody chapter of Indonesian history that is seldom discussed outside of the country. First-time director Joshua Oppenheimer follows a few of these so-called “theater gangsters” who participated in the mass murder and who talked shamelessly about what they did and how they did it.
