IRCT Global Report on the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture



AMSA Philippines' free screening of "The Act of Killing" is featured on the 2014 Global Report on the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture by the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims! The article on page 19 reads:
Thanks to this year's collaboration with the team behind the award-winning documentary 'The Act of Killing,' staff and students attended a screening of the film at AMSA'a offices.
A group discussion followed the film focusing on how fear and oppression still prevail in Indonesia. The discussion also centered around the complexity of moral corruption in contemporary Indonesia as a result of the atrocities in its history. The participants affirmed that Indonesia's nightmares will persist as the mass killings' perpetrators remain the country's  heroes and leaders. The discussion there reflected upon ways in which the government could tackle impunity in the future.
