Publisher Description

In 2012, Joshua Oppenheimer made a very disturbing documentary film about a genocide in Indonesia that happened 50 years ago. The Act of Killing was nominated for an Oscar and showed the bizarre and casual callousness of those who carried out the crimes in the 1960s. Now Oppenheimer has followed that film with a brand new sequel called The Look of Silence. It's in limited release now and opens in Washington DC and many other cities next week. He's here to discuss confronting the now elderly perpetrators – many of whom are still powerful in Indonesia – and to explain how addressing the atrocities can help set the country on a path of reconciliation. In desperate situations, fear can give us the adrenaline we need for survival, or drive us to total terror and impede our ability to think clearly. Science writer Jeff Wise, columnist for Popular Mechanics, examines how and why we respond to fear in his book Extreme Fear: The Science of Your Mind in Danger. We also pay our respects to novelist E. L. Doctorow, who died on Tuesday at the age of 84. [Broadcast Date: July 24, 2015]
