Jagal - The Act of Killing (full movie)

  • 1:12 - 1:18
    Peace! Happiness! Smile!
  • 1:18 - 1:23
    1, 234!
    Smile! More teeth!
  • 1:23 - 1:29
    Don't let the camera
    catch you looking bad!
  • 1:29 - 1:35
    Smile! 1, 2, 3, 4!
  • 1:35 - 1:38
    Real joy, not just pleasure!
  • 1:38 - 1:45
    And natural beauty!
    This isn’t fake!
  • 1:45 - 1:50
    Okay, peace! Peace! Peace!
  • 4:03 - 4:08
    I'm looking for an actress...
  • 4:08 - 4:11
    ...an actress to play a mother.
  • 4:11 - 4:13
    Old ladies like you...
  • 4:13 - 4:17
    When you see
    movie stars on TV-
  • 4:17 - 4:21
    - you must dream of becoming one.
  • 4:21 - 4:24
    - No, I don't.
    - Why not?
  • 4:24 - 4:27
    - You have nothing else to do.
    - No, I'm busy.
  • 4:28 - 4:34
    These women won't agree
    to play communists like this.
  • 4:34 - 4:42
    It might work if we
    invite them to your house first...
  • 4:42 - 4:45
    But if we ask them right here,
    they'll be afraid.
  • 4:46 - 4:49
    People might think
    they really are communists.
  • 4:49 - 4:54
    I disagree... In my neighborhood
    everybody would do it.
  • 4:54 - 4:58
    Then let's go there instead.
    It's impossible here.
  • 4:58 - 5:02
    This whole area was communist.
  • 5:05 - 5:10
    We're looking for
    women with children -
  • 5:10 - 5:14
    -to play communist wives.
  • 5:15 - 5:20
    You try to prevent us
    from burning down your house.
  • 5:20 - 5:22
    But in the end
    we burn it down.
  • 5:23 - 5:28
    'Mother, they burned
    our house down!'
  • 5:35 - 5:38
    Like that.
  • 5:38 - 5:42
    And don't worry if you touch
    her breasts. You're still a kid.
  • 5:42 - 5:45
    Ready?
  • 5:48 - 5:50
    Kill them!
  • 5:50 - 5:52
    No!
  • 5:52 - 5:57
    - Destroy their house!
    - No, please don't!
  • 5:58 - 6:02
    Burn it!
  • 6:02 - 6:03
    Kill!
  • 6:04 - 6:09
    Cry! Weep!
  • 6:09 - 6:12
    Don't burn my house.
  • 6:12 - 6:18
    Keep crying!
  • 6:18 - 6:20
    Okay cut, cut!
  • 6:29 - 6:33
    Whether this ends up
    on the big screen -
  • 6:33 - 6:39
    - or only on TV
    it doesn't matter.
  • 6:40 - 6:45
    - But we have to show...
    - That this is the history!
  • 6:45 - 6:49
    This is who we are!
  • 6:49 - 6:53
    So in the future
    people will remember!
  • 6:53 - 6:56
    It doesn't have to be a big film -
  • 6:56 - 7:03
    - like Rank Organization,
    Paramount Pictures, MGM...
  • 7:03 - 7:10
    We, in our simple way
    step by step -
  • 7:10 - 7:15
    - will tell the story-
  • 7:15 - 7:19
    - of what we did
    when we were young!
  • 7:21 - 7:25
    Excuse me...
  • 7:31 - 7:37
    There's many ghosts here, because
    many people were killed here.
  • 7:37 - 7:42
    - They died unnatural deaths.
    - Unnatural deaths.
  • 7:42 - 7:45
    They arrived perfectly healthy.
  • 7:45 - 7:49
    When they got here
    they were beaten up... and died.
  • 7:49 - 7:55
    At first, we beat them to death...
    But there was too much blood.
  • 7:55 - 8:00
    There was so much blood here...
  • 8:01 - 8:07
    So when we cleaned it up,
    it smelled awful.
  • 8:07 - 8:12
    To avoid the blood,
    I used this system.
  • 8:13 - 8:16
    Can I show you?
  • 8:23 - 8:26
    Sit there.
  • 8:27 - 8:29
    Face that way.
  • 8:30 - 8:33
    We have to re-enact this properly.
  • 8:39 - 8:41
    This is how to do it -
  • 8:41 - 8:46
    - without too much blood.
  • 8:48 - 8:56
    I've tried to forget all this
    with good music... Dancing...
  • 8:57 - 8:59
    Feeling happy..
  • 8:59 - 9:03
    A little alcohol...
  • 9:03 - 9:06
    A little marijuana...
  • 9:06 - 9:11
    A little... what do you call it?
    Ecstasy..
  • 9:11 - 9:16
    Once I'd get drunk,
    I'd 'fly' and feel happy.
  • 9:17 - 9:19
    Cha cha.
  • 9:38 - 9:40
    He's a happy man.
  • 10:12 - 10:15
    Anwar Congo,
    from the paramilitary group.
  • 10:15 - 10:19
    You've heard of him?
    From the Medan Cinema.
  • 10:19 - 10:24
    Now that I'm governor,
    I stab him if he threatens me.
  • 10:30 - 10:33
    Everyone was scared of him.
  • 10:33 - 10:35
    The only one not scared was me-
  • 10:35 - 10:39
    - because he looked after me
    when I was a kid.
  • 10:39 - 10:43
    When I was in high school -
  • 10:43 - 10:47
    - I was the only one
    not scared of him -
  • 10:47 - 10:51
    - because I didn't think of him
    as a big gangster.
  • 10:52 - 10:55
    But when people heard his name,
    they'd be terrified.
  • 10:55 - 11:00
    - Why?
    - Because he's one of the killers.
  • 11:00 - 11:05
    Now, the communists' children
    are starting to speak out -
  • 11:05 - 11:09
    - trying to reverse the history.
  • 11:09 - 11:13
    One of them wrote, 'I’m Proud to be
    the Child of a Communist.'
  • 11:13 - 11:17
    But this won't last long -
  • 11:17 - 11:19
    - because the people won't accept it.
  • 11:20 - 11:23
    Communism will never be
    accepted here, because -
  • 11:23 - 11:30
    - we have so many gangsters,
    and that's a good thing.
  • 11:30 - 11:35
    The word 'gangster' comes
    from English. 'Free men'.
  • 11:36 - 11:40
    Thugs want freedom to do things,
    even if they're wrong...
  • 11:40 - 11:45
    But if we know
    how to work with them -
  • 11:45 - 11:48
    - all we have to do is direct them.
  • 12:01 - 12:07
    We were gangsters.
    We didn't have real jobs.
  • 12:07 - 12:14
    So we'd do anything for money..
  • 12:14 - 12:18
    ...just to buy nice clothes.
  • 12:19 - 12:21
    This was the cinema -
  • 12:21 - 12:24
    - where I worked.
  • 12:24 - 12:29
    I'd stand here,
    scalping tickets and showing off.
  • 12:29 - 12:33
    When films were popular,
    we'd scalp tickets.
  • 12:33 - 12:40
    But when the communists
    were strong -
  • 12:40 - 12:46
    - they demanded
    a ban on American films.
  • 12:46 - 12:52
    They wanted fewer
    American films.
  • 12:52 - 12:59
    - So we gangsters made less money.
    - Because there was no audience.
  • 12:59 - 13:03
    Hollywood films were popular.
  • 13:04 - 13:09
    Without them the gangsters
    didn't make as much money.
  • 13:09 - 13:13
    As we say:
    'Dinner missed the belly'
  • 13:15 - 13:20
    When we'd watch happy movies,
    like Elvis movies -
  • 13:20 - 13:27
    - we'd leave the cinema smiling,
    dancing to the music.
  • 13:28 - 13:31
    Our hands...
  • 13:32 - 13:37
    Still dancing...
  • 13:37 - 13:40
    Still in the mood of the film...
  • 13:41 - 13:46
    if girls passed,
    we'd whistle.
  • 13:46 - 13:51
    We loved it.
    We didn't care what people thought.
  • 13:51 - 13:58
    Here was the paramilitary office,
    where I always killed people.
  • 13:58 - 14:03
    I'd see the guy
    being interrogated...
  • 14:03 - 14:08
    I'd give him a cigarette.
    I'd still be dancing, laughing...
  • 14:09 - 14:14
    it was like we were killing...
  • 14:14 - 14:16
    ...happily!
  • 14:39 - 14:43
    When my mom was alive -
  • 14:43 - 14:50
    - sometimes,
    when I was screaming...
  • 14:51 - 14:57
    ...my mom would rush in
    and wake me up.
  • 14:57 - 15:00
    'Before you sleep, wash your feet!'
  • 15:00 - 15:05
    'Pray properly Don't just sleep.'
  • 15:06 - 15:14
    I know my bad dreams
    come from what I did...
  • 15:15 - 15:19
    ...killing people
    who didn't want to die.
  • 15:19 - 15:21
    I forced them to die.
  • 15:25 - 15:32
    Why are you daydreaming,
    my love?
  • 15:32 - 15:37
    Are you so uncertain?
  • 15:53 - 15:59
    You're a star now!
  • 15:59 - 16:02
    Amazing!
  • 16:02 - 16:04
    This guy's a star!
  • 16:09 - 16:11
    Joshua, film the photos!
  • 16:11 - 16:16
    That's the president's father-in-law,
    Sarwo Edhie.
  • 16:16 - 16:20
    - I'll introduce them one-by-one.
    - That’s the president.
  • 16:21 - 16:24
    That's him with the president.
  • 16:25 - 16:31
    Ibrahim Sinik is famous
    all across the country!
  • 16:31 - 16:38
    We gangsters keep him
    well protected.
  • 16:38 - 16:41
    We wish him
    a long, prosperous life.
  • 16:41 - 16:44
    But don't forget
    to share your money!
  • 16:44 - 16:46
    Ask Joshua for money.
  • 16:47 - 16:49
    After all, he’s from London!
  • 16:49 - 16:53
    You interrogated communists
    in your newsroom?
  • 16:53 - 16:57
    He was always
    gathering information.
  • 16:57 - 17:02
    When he had the information -
  • 17:02 - 17:08
    - he'd say: 'Guilty!' and we'd
    take them away and kill them.
  • 17:10 - 17:14
    When you interrogated
    communists in your office -
  • 17:14 - 17:18
    - what questions did you ask?
  • 17:18 - 17:22
    Whatever we asked,
    we'd change their answers -
  • 17:22 - 17:25
    - to make them look bad.
  • 17:25 - 17:28
    As a newspaper man -
  • 17:28 - 17:34
    - my job was to make
    the public hate them.
  • 17:34 - 17:38
    And your relationship
    with the army?
  • 17:38 - 17:42
    - The army.
    - We had no formal relationship.
  • 17:42 - 17:45
    But after we captured
    the communist youth -
  • 17:46 - 17:49
    - and beat them to a pulp -
  • 17:49 - 17:52
    - we gave them to the army
    but the army wouldn't take them.
  • 17:53 - 17:56
    They said,
    'Just dump them in the river.'
  • 17:57 - 18:01
    Do you remember
    exactly what the army said?
  • 18:01 - 18:04
    I didn't bring the victims.
    I had men for that.
  • 18:04 - 18:08
    Why would I do such grunt work?
    Why would I kill people?
  • 18:09 - 18:13
    I didn't have to! One wink from me
    and they're dead!
  • 18:51 - 18:56
    Pancasila Youth!
  • 19:08 - 19:11
    How you doing, Anwar?
  • 19:11 - 19:14
    This is the real Anwar Congo!
  • 19:21 - 19:27
    Pancasila Youth,
    servants of the nation...
  • 19:27 - 19:30
    Once our sails go up -
  • 19:31 - 19:35
    - we never turn back!
  • 19:53 - 19:55
    - Pancasila!
    - Forever!
  • 19:59 - 20:06
    All Pancasila Youth members
    are heroes.
  • 20:06 - 20:09
    From exterminating
    the communists -
  • 20:09 - 20:14
    - to fighting neo-communists
    and left-wing extremists-
  • 20:14 - 20:21
    - and those who want
    to destroy our country..
  • 20:21 - 20:24
    This isn't only the duty
    of the army and police.
  • 20:25 - 20:29
    We, Pancasila Youth,
    must take a stand.
  • 20:29 - 20:36
    These are threats to the nation,
    and we must take action.
  • 20:38 - 20:42
    They say Pancasila Youth
    is a gangster organization.
  • 20:43 - 20:45
    If we're gangsters-
  • 20:45 - 20:49
    - I'm the biggest
    gangster of all.
  • 20:54 - 20:56
    Oh, shit!
  • 21:00 - 21:04
    How did Pancasila Youth
    exterminate the communists?
  • 21:05 - 21:07
    We killed them all.
  • 21:07 - 21:10
    That's what happened.
  • 21:11 - 21:14
    May I hit the ball now?
  • 21:22 - 21:27
    We have too much democracy
    it's chaos.
  • 21:27 - 21:31
    What is this 'democracy'?
  • 21:31 - 21:35
    Things were better under
    the military dictatorship.
  • 21:35 - 21:38
    Better economy More security .
  • 21:41 - 21:43
    Gangsters are free men.
  • 21:43 - 21:49
    They want to enjoy, life
    in their style.
  • 21:50 - 21:53
    Relax and Rolex.
  • 21:57 - 22:01
    You definitely have a mole
    on your pussy.
  • 22:02 - 22:05
    Definitely.
  • 22:12 - 22:14
    That was great.
  • 22:20 - 22:23
    If I get a strike,
    I get a massage!
  • 22:42 - 22:47
    There must be many ghosts here.
  • 22:47 - 22:50
    They arrived perfectly healthy.
  • 22:50 - 22:53
    Then they were beaten up.
  • 22:53 - 22:55
    And died.
  • 22:57 - 22:59
    Sit here.
  • 23:03 - 23:06
    We have to re-enact this properly
  • 23:17 - 23:22
    I never would have
    worn white pants.
  • 23:23 - 23:26
    I never wore white.
  • 23:26 - 23:29
    I always wore dark colors.
  • 23:30 - 23:34
    I look like I'm dressed for a picnic.
  • 23:40 - 23:43
    My acting has to be violent.
  • 23:45 - 23:52
    And maybe I should dye
    my hair black.
  • 23:52 - 23:56
    And now he's dead.
  • 24:00 - 24:03
    But how do you feel
    watching this?
  • 24:03 - 24:09
    How do I feel?
    Back then I felt more free.
  • 24:09 - 24:16
    Older men are gentle,
    but young men...
  • 24:16 - 24:21
    Especially me, because I watched
    so many sadistic movies.
  • 24:21 - 24:26
    We were influenced by them.
    So we...
  • 24:26 - 24:31
    We were more cruel
    than the movies.
  • 24:35 - 24:39
    I know a good location
    for a torture scene.
  • 24:39 - 24:47
    Behind the school,
    in the old toilets...
  • 24:49 - 24:52
    - But the neighbors will hear..
    - They know me.
  • 24:53 - 24:57
    If I look at them,
    they run away.
  • 24:59 - 25:03
    Look, I'm laughing.
    I did it wrong, didn't I?
  • 25:03 - 25:05
    It's my mistake.
  • 25:10 - 25:14
    I was influenced
    by films starring -
  • 25:14 - 25:19
    - Marlon Brando, Al Pacino...
  • 25:19 - 25:27
    Those were my favorites.
    And westerns with John Wayne.
  • 25:29 - 25:34
    I brought these clothes
    from home.
  • 25:35 - 25:39
    Hopefully they express my vision.
  • 25:39 - 25:46
    Hey you have to change your shirt.
    Put on a white one.
  • 25:46 - 25:53
    You'll look lovely in this!
    Perfect!
  • 25:53 - 25:59
    - What the fuck is this?
    - Just a little decoration.
  • 26:00 - 26:04
    It matches your body shape.
  • 26:04 - 26:07
    It's perfect!
  • 26:07 - 26:13
    - This one's for the 'Big Boss'.
    - Yep. It's perfect for me.
  • 26:16 - 26:20
    And you know where I got
    the inspiration for it?
  • 26:21 - 26:26
    I always watched gangsterfilms -
  • 26:26 - 26:30
    - where they always kill with wire.
  • 26:30 - 26:33
    It's faster with wire.
  • 26:33 - 26:40
    Because when you pull the wire
    hard, the victim can't grab it...
  • 26:40 - 26:44
    He can't, because it cuts in...
  • 27:09 - 27:13
    it's great to be
    a communist, huh?
  • 27:14 - 27:19
    Don't just nod. Say 'Yes sir!'
  • 27:22 - 27:25
    - Wanna smoke, Pang?
    - No.
  • 27:25 - 27:32
    Try this 'neo-colonialist' cigar.
  • 27:32 - 27:35
    Have a puff.
  • 27:36 - 27:40
    Just stick it in your nose
    if you don't want to smoke it.
  • 27:40 - 27:43
    - Look at him!
    - Look at me.
  • 27:43 - 27:46
    Look him in the eye!
  • 28:09 - 28:14
    Hold on, Joshua.
    It's evening prayers.
  • 28:19 - 28:22
    - Don't tie the blindfold so tight.
    - I didn't.
  • 28:23 - 28:26
    The way I pull it
    just looks tight.
  • 28:28 - 28:31
    Even by the window it's hot.
  • 28:52 - 28:55
    'Human rights!'
  • 28:55 - 29:01
    All this talk about 'human rights'
    pisses me off.
  • 29:02 - 29:06
    'We want a little human rights!'
  • 29:08 - 29:11
    Back then
    there was no human rights.
  • 29:11 - 29:15
    - Because you made a revolution.
    - That's no excuse.
  • 29:16 - 29:22
    For example, in Argentina
    some generals launch a coup d'état-
  • 29:22 - 29:26
    - and then they're convicted
    of human rights violations.
  • 29:28 - 29:32
    But I'm a gangster
  • 29:35 - 29:39
    I'm a gangster A free man.
  • 29:39 - 29:41
    A movietheater gangster.
  • 29:41 - 29:44
    Not much education.
  • 29:44 - 29:49
    - A human drop out.
    - A drop out.
  • 29:50 - 29:55
    There are people like me
    everywhere in the world.
  • 30:17 - 30:20
    They still look great.
  • 30:22 - 30:27
    There were many
    Chinese communists!
  • 30:27 - 30:32
    I got a thick book
    with all their names.
  • 30:32 - 30:36
    I'd visit them,
    'How much you gonna pay?'
  • 30:36 - 30:41
    They'd say
    'Please, Sir don't! I'm old.'
  • 30:42 - 30:47
    We used them for their money
    We didn't kill them.
  • 30:47 - 30:53
    But if they didn't pay we killed
    them. They can't have it both ways.
  • 30:53 - 30:56
    If they didn't pay..
  • 30:57 - 30:59
    ...we killed them.
  • 31:10 - 31:15
    These Chinese are diff cult.
    Sometimes they piss me off.
  • 31:19 - 31:26
    That's it...
    You sure speak good Chinese.
  • 31:27 - 31:33
    When I need money
    there's nothing like an old friend.
  • 31:33 - 31:37
    With others, if it's not enough,
    I won't accept it.
  • 31:39 - 31:44
    Hi Lung. C'mon, shake my hand.
    It's been a long time.
  • 31:45 - 31:49
    - I need money.
    - Why me?
  • 31:49 - 31:53
    I'm asking you nicely
  • 31:53 - 31:58
    I don't even ask the others.
    I just punch them...
  • 31:58 - 32:01
    An uppercut right in the stomach.
  • 32:03 - 32:09
    You give this sincerely?
    Then thank you very much.
  • 32:14 - 32:19
    Our organization is planning
    a big meeting. We need money.
  • 32:19 - 32:23
    We need more than normal.
  • 32:23 - 32:27
    We need a huge amount.
  • 32:27 - 32:31
    Don't give the usual amount.
  • 32:31 - 32:34
    What’s this shit?
  • 32:34 - 32:36
    Give more
    or I won't accept it.
  • 32:37 - 32:42
    - Please...
    - I'd never accept so little.
  • 32:43 - 32:45
    Here.
  • 32:45 - 32:48
    That's not enough.
  • 32:49 - 32:51
    What's wrong with you, Cik?
  • 32:51 - 32:55
    We consider you our father Cik.
  • 32:55 - 33:01
    So throw in more, and we'll take it,
    because this isn’t for just anybody.
  • 33:01 - 33:05
    Count it up and put it in.
  • 33:22 - 33:28
    The spirit of Pancasila Youth -
  • 33:28 - 33:32
    - which people accuse
    of being gangsters...
  • 33:32 - 33:37
    Gangsters are people
    who work outside the system -
  • 33:37 - 33:41
    - not for the government.
  • 33:43 - 33:46
    The word 'gangster'
    comes from 'free men'.
  • 33:46 - 33:51
    This nation needs 'free men'!
  • 33:54 - 33:57
    If everyone worked for
    the government-
  • 33:58 - 34:02
    - we'd be a nation of bureaucrats.
    We'd get nothing done.
  • 34:02 - 34:05
    We need gangsters
    to get things done.
  • 34:06 - 34:09
    Free, private men
    who get things done.
  • 34:12 - 34:15
    Use your muscles!
  • 34:16 - 34:19
    Muscles aren't
    for beating people up -
  • 34:19 - 34:24
    - although beating people up
    is sometimes needed.
  • 34:27 - 34:30
    - Once more, Pancasila!
    - Forever!
  • 34:30 - 34:33
    - Pancasila!
    - Freedom!
  • 34:36 - 34:41
    While you wait for this train,
    we wish to inform you -
  • 34:41 - 34:47
    - that the traffic laws are there
    to protect you and your family.
  • 34:47 - 34:52
    We also inform you,
    that in accordance with the law...
  • 34:54 - 35:00
    - This is me, Anwar Congo.
    - Oh, that's you!
  • 35:01 - 35:03
    Look, I'm rolling a joint.
  • 35:04 - 35:07
    You're smoking pot.
  • 35:07 - 35:13
    That's me. I'm wearing a plaid shirt,
    camouflage pants, saddle shoes...
  • 35:13 - 35:16
    See how 'elite' I am?
  • 35:16 - 35:20
    This is what you should wear
    in the studio scene.
  • 35:20 - 35:27
    And for the killing scene... Jeans.
    I wore jeans for killing.
  • 35:27 - 35:33
    When you kill people, you should
    wear thick pants. Like this...
  • 35:33 - 35:39
    - How about a checkered pattern?
    - That'd be great, but small ones.
  • 35:39 - 35:45
    To look cool,
    I imitated movie stars.
  • 35:45 - 35:49
    But I didn't copy Elvis Presley
  • 35:49 - 35:55
    Herman, I'll make you
    a gorgeous dress!
  • 35:56 - 36:00
    - More energy!
    - We're ready boss!
  • 36:00 - 36:03
    Burn them all!
  • 36:03 - 36:05
    Finally you got it!
  • 36:05 - 36:12
    Cry 'What's going on, mom?'
    'Leave us alone!'
  • 36:14 - 36:19
    Wait everybody!
    Anwar show us how to kill.
  • 36:22 - 36:25
    You! Come here!
  • 36:27 - 36:31
    What's going on?
  • 36:31 - 36:39
    Who says I'm a communist?
  • 36:44 - 36:49
    Hold him down!
  • 36:49 - 36:52
    Torture him! Kill him!
  • 36:53 - 36:55
    Are you listening?
  • 36:55 - 36:59
    Stop denying
    you're a communist!
  • 37:03 - 37:06
    - Okay fine!
    - Leave our grandfather alone!
  • 37:06 - 37:10
    You take him, I'll take the kids!
  • 37:13 - 37:16
    - You love these kids?
    - Please stop.
  • 37:16 - 37:18
    Sit!
  • 37:19 - 37:23
    - Or I'll smash this kid!
    - Let me go!
  • 37:23 - 37:29
    If you love these kids,
    you better stop lying.
  • 37:29 - 37:32
    It's your choice!
  • 37:34 - 37:37
    Cut!
  • 37:39 - 37:41
    Amazing!
  • 37:54 - 37:57
    Why do people watch James Bond?
  • 37:58 - 38:00
    To see action.
  • 38:01 - 38:07
    Why do people watch films about
    Nazis? To see power and sadism!
  • 38:07 - 38:09
    We can do that!
  • 38:09 - 38:15
    We can make something
    even more sadistic than...
  • 38:16 - 38:23
    ...more sadistic than what
    you see in movies about Nazis.
  • 38:23 - 38:25
    Sure I can!
  • 38:25 - 38:30
    Because there's never been a movie
    where heads get chopped off-
  • 38:30 - 38:35
    - except in fiction,
    but that’s different -
  • 38:35 - 38:39
    - because I did it in real life!
  • 38:49 - 38:54
    What's clear is no film
    has ever used our method.
  • 38:56 - 39:01
    We can attract a huge audience!
  • 39:01 - 39:05
    Humor... it's a must.
  • 39:05 - 39:09
    - Romance?
    - We've got it!
  • 39:11 - 39:13
    Fuck this umbrella!
  • 39:13 - 39:16
    Herman’s trapped.
  • 39:17 - 39:20
    He should scream,
    'Leave me alone! Stop! Stop!'
  • 39:20 - 39:25
    Meanwhile, the three of us scream,
    'You communist bitch!'
  • 39:27 - 39:31
    Keep attacking her!
  • 39:33 - 39:40
    I'm gonna rape you!
    I'm gonna kill you!
  • 39:41 - 39:47
    How long have you been pregnant?
    You'll give birth to a communist!
  • 39:47 - 39:50
    But if the audience is
    tense the whole time -
  • 39:50 - 39:53
    - with nothing to entertain them,
    it will never work!
  • 39:57 - 40:02
    On Saturday night,
    I went to the movies.
  • 40:02 - 40:07
    Oh, I'm not gonna
    shake my ass or anything.
  • 40:08 - 40:15
    I watched the movie
    alone with my girlfriend.
  • 40:15 - 40:23
    The film was sold out -
  • 40:23 - 40:30
    - so I bought tickets from
    the movie theater gangsters.
  • 40:30 - 40:33
    Oh how lovely..
  • 40:53 - 41:01
    - Adi! How’s the family?
    - We're all fine.
  • 41:02 - 41:07
    Was it a good flight?
  • 41:07 - 41:11
    - How've you been, Anwar?
    - I'm fine.
  • 41:13 - 41:16
    - The city has changed a lot.
    - Really?
  • 41:16 - 41:21
    I've tried to call you many times.
  • 41:21 - 41:25
    But you never answer my calls.
  • 41:54 - 41:56
    Your nose needs more.
  • 41:56 - 42:03
    - Do you remember Soaduon?
    - Yes, where is he?
  • 42:03 - 42:08
    Over there. Soaduon Siregar.
  • 42:08 - 42:14
    Now he takes credit for everything,
    but back then he was nobody
  • 42:14 - 42:18
    I remember him.
  • 42:25 - 42:30
    - Adi, this is Soaduon Siregar.
    - I remember you.
  • 42:30 - 42:35
    He's one of Ibrahim's Sinik's
    journalists.
  • 42:35 - 42:37
    As they say:
  • 42:37 - 42:42
    'Although camels live in Arabia,
    they never get to visit Mecca.'
  • 42:42 - 42:47
    Being close to a rich boss
    didn't make him rich.
  • 42:47 - 42:51
    Just like me.
    Have a seat.
  • 42:51 - 42:55
    Interrogation of Communist, Take 2
  • 42:57 - 43:04
    We give land to the farmers.
  • 43:04 - 43:09
    We give them fertilizer, seeds,
    farming equipment...
  • 43:10 - 43:15
    In order to spread
    communism, right?
  • 43:16 - 43:23
    Indeed, we want to show that
    the Communists are the best party.
  • 43:24 - 43:30
    Why do you recruit people
    to join an illegal party?
  • 43:31 - 43:36
    But back then, it wasn't illegal.
  • 43:36 - 43:41
    - It wasn't?
    - Before 1965? Of course not!
  • 43:41 - 43:48
    It's easy to make the communists
    look bad after we destroyed them.
  • 43:49 - 43:54
    So, the communists were not
    more cruel than us.
  • 43:54 - 43:59
    We were the cruel ones!
  • 43:59 - 44:03
    'Cruel' is totally
    different from sadistic.
  • 44:03 - 44:08
    - No, it isn't. They're synonyms.
    - No.
  • 44:08 - 44:10
    Sadism is different.
  • 44:10 - 44:14
    - You're playing with words!
    - No, I'm not.
  • 44:14 - 44:16
    You're playing with words.
  • 44:20 - 44:25
    It bumped its head.
  • 44:30 - 44:37
    Sometimes I think... if my dad
    was a communist and was killed -
  • 44:37 - 44:41
    - I'd be upset. That's normal, right?
  • 44:45 - 44:51
    For example, if you killed my father
    I'd be upset with you.
  • 44:51 - 44:53
    Why'd you kill my father?
  • 44:53 - 44:58
    Then, you don't let me go to school.
    You don't let me work.
  • 44:58 - 45:04
    You don't even let me marry
    This needs to be changed.
  • 45:04 - 45:07
    There's been no official apology -
  • 45:07 - 45:11
    - but what's so hard
    about apologizing?
  • 45:11 - 45:15
    The government would apologize,
    not us.
  • 45:15 - 45:19
    It would be like medicine.
    It would reduce the pain.
  • 45:19 - 45:24
    - Forgiveness.
    - Wouldn't they curse us secretly?
  • 45:24 - 45:31
    They curse us secretly..
    Because if they cursed us openly..
  • 45:31 - 45:37
    They'd be arrested!
    So they whisper their curses?
  • 45:38 - 45:42
    For me, Adi, in the end...
  • 45:42 - 45:48
    I'm disturbed in my sleep.
    Maybe because-
  • 45:48 - 45:53
    - when I strangled people with wire
    I watched them die...
  • 45:53 - 45:58
    But when you used other methods,
    you also watched.
  • 45:58 - 46:02
    Yes, but when I'm falling asleep,
    it comes back to me.
  • 46:02 - 46:05
    That's what gives me nightmares.
  • 46:07 - 46:13
    You feel haunted
    because your mind is weak.
  • 46:13 - 46:17
    Have you ever been
    to a neurologist?
  • 46:17 - 46:23
    If I went to a neurologist,
    it would mean I'm crazy.
  • 46:23 - 46:28
    No! Psychiatrists are not
    for crazy people.
  • 46:28 - 46:35
    Psychiatrists aren't for crazy
    people. They're nerve experts.
  • 46:35 - 46:42
    Even I've been to a nerve expert...
    But for a mild stroke.
  • 46:43 - 46:50
    See, your nightmares are just
    a nerve disturbance.
  • 46:50 - 46:53
    Come on, give it a try!
  • 46:53 - 46:59
    If you see a shrink,
    you talk, he talks.
  • 47:00 - 47:03
    Then he gives you nerve vitamins.
  • 47:15 - 47:18
    Remember the 'Crush
    the Chinese' campaign in 1966?
  • 47:18 - 47:21
    All along Sudirman Street -
  • 47:21 - 47:25
    - I killed every Chinese
    person I met. I stabbed them!
  • 47:25 - 47:33
    I don't remember how many
    but it was dozens.
  • 47:33 - 47:37
    If I met them, I stabbed them.
  • 47:37 - 47:42
    All the way to Asia Street,
    where I met my girlfriend's dad.
  • 47:42 - 47:46
    Remember my girlfriend
    was Chinese?
  • 47:47 - 47:51
    'Crush the Chinese' became
    'Crush my Girlfriend's Dad'!
  • 47:51 - 47:55
    So I stabbed him, too!
    Because he was Chinese!
  • 47:55 - 48:00
    He fell into a ditch.
    I hit him with a brick. He sank.
  • 48:07 - 48:12
    Killing is the worst crime
    you can do.
  • 48:12 - 48:16
    So the key is to find a way -
  • 48:16 - 48:20
    - not to feel guilty
  • 48:21 - 48:24
    it's all about finding
    the right excuse.
  • 48:24 - 48:30
    For example, if I'm asked
    to kill someone...
  • 48:31 - 48:38
    If the compensation is right...
  • 48:39 - 48:44
    ...then of course I'll do it, and
    from one perspective it's not wrong.
  • 48:45 - 48:49
    That’s the perspective
    we must make ourselves believe.
  • 48:51 - 48:56
    At first, I was scared...
    These are top gangsters!
  • 48:56 - 49:02
    Like you and Anwar...
  • 49:02 - 49:07
    Terrifying!
    And making a film! It's shocking!
  • 49:08 - 49:11
    But if you want a true story
    I have one.
  • 49:11 - 49:17
    Tell us. Because everything
    in this film should be true.
  • 49:17 - 49:22
    There was a shopkeeper.
  • 49:22 - 49:26
    He was the only Chinese person
    in the area.
  • 49:26 - 49:31
    To be honest,
    he was my stepfather.
  • 49:31 - 49:34
    He was my stepfather..
  • 49:34 - 49:38
    But although
    he was my stepfather-
  • 49:38 - 49:42
    - I lived with him
    since I was a baby..
  • 49:42 - 49:48
    At 3 AM,
    someone knocked on our door.
  • 49:49 - 49:55
    They called my dad. Mom said,
    'It's dangerous! Don't go out.'
  • 49:55 - 49:58
    But he went out.
  • 49:58 - 50:01
    We heard him shout, 'Help!'
    Then, silence.
  • 50:02 - 50:06
    They took him away
    We couldn't sleep until morning.
  • 50:06 - 50:11
    - How old were you?
    - 11 or 12...
  • 50:11 - 50:14
    I remember it well.
  • 50:14 - 50:17
    And it's impossible to forget!
  • 50:18 - 50:22
    We found his body
    under an oil drum.
  • 50:22 - 50:27
    The drum was cut in half-
  • 50:27 - 50:31
    - and the body was under it,
    like this...
  • 50:31 - 50:34
    His head and feet were
    covered by sacks -
  • 50:34 - 50:37
    - but one foot poked out like this.
  • 50:38 - 50:42
    That same morning,
    nobody dared help us...
  • 50:42 - 50:49
    We buried him like a goat
    next to the main road.
  • 50:49 - 50:54
    Just me and my grandfather
    carrying the body-
  • 50:54 - 50:59
    - digging the grave... No one
    helped us. I was so small.
  • 50:59 - 51:07
    Then, all the communist families
    were exiled...
  • 51:08 - 51:13
    We were dumped in a shantytown
    at the edge of the jungle.
  • 51:13 - 51:18
    That's why to be honest,
    I've never been to school.
  • 51:18 - 51:22
    I had to teach myself
    to read and write.
  • 51:22 - 51:27
    Why should I hide this from you?
  • 51:27 - 51:33
    I promise I'm not
    criticizing what we're doing.
  • 51:33 - 51:38
    It's only input for the film.
    I promise I'm not criticizing you.
  • 51:39 - 51:42
    Look, everything's
    already been planned.
  • 51:42 - 51:46
    We can't include every story
    or the film will never end.
  • 51:46 - 51:53
    And your story is too complicated.
    It would take days to shoot.
  • 51:53 - 51:59
    - Maybe we can work it in...
    - Or it can motivate the actors.
  • 52:01 - 52:04
    We believe this man's a communist.
  • 52:05 - 52:12
    After we decided to kill him, there
    were many reactions. Some prayed.
  • 52:12 - 52:18
    - Come on, pray.
    - 'God help me!'
  • 52:18 - 52:21
    How do you tell him he's going
    to die? Angrily or softly?
  • 52:22 - 52:29
    I tried to make them accept
    that they were going to die.
  • 52:29 - 52:33
    Anwar teach us how to torture.
  • 52:34 - 52:38
    'You want me to use this?'
  • 52:38 - 52:42
    - Should I scare him?
    - Yes.
  • 52:43 - 52:47
    You want me to use this?
  • 52:47 - 52:53
    Then, beg him not to.
  • 52:53 - 52:59
    Now, take the cloth
    and blindfold him.
  • 53:00 - 53:06
    Josh always asks me,
    'You worked in the same office -
  • 53:06 - 53:10
    - how could you not have known?'
  • 53:10 - 53:17
    I declare: I never saw anything.
  • 53:18 - 53:25
    Now, seeing your re-enactment,
    I realize you were so smooth -
  • 53:25 - 53:31
    - that even me, a journalist
    with such sharp senses...
  • 53:31 - 53:33
    I never knew!
  • 53:33 - 53:41
    I'm surprised. Because we didn't
    hide what we were doing.
  • 53:42 - 53:47
    - If you didn't know, I'd be shocked.
    - I didn't.
  • 53:47 - 53:50
    We were in the same office...
  • 53:50 - 53:55
    - And we didn't hide it.
    - I never knew.
  • 53:57 - 54:04
    You were so smooth, and I rarely
    went upstairs to your office.
  • 54:04 - 54:10
    - Your publisher directed the torture.
    - No!
  • 54:10 - 54:14
    - He says so himself.
    - That's not true!
  • 54:14 - 54:21
    He and the other leaders
    decided who we killed.
  • 54:22 - 54:26
    Look, I'm not calling you a liar,
    but logically..
  • 54:27 - 54:32
    - Continue, Adi.
    - I'm not calling him a liar Joshua.
  • 54:32 - 54:40
    But this man, a journalist distancing
    himself from these things...
  • 54:40 - 54:47
    That's predictable. But logically
    something we didn't hide...
  • 54:47 - 54:52
    How could he not know?
    Even the neighbors knew!
  • 54:52 - 54:58
    Hundreds were killed.
    It was an open secret.
  • 54:59 - 55:05
    - Drink!
    - Have some water.
  • 55:05 - 55:09
    - Drink!
    - It's not poison!
  • 55:09 - 55:14
    Drink! Just drink it.
  • 55:14 - 55:21
    - Drink it. It will refresh you.
    - Give him a cigarette.
  • 55:23 - 55:26
    Let him smoke.
  • 55:26 - 55:30
    It's sadistic, Adi.
  • 55:32 - 55:37
    Ask him again about his activities.
  • 55:39 - 55:43
    Have mercy on me.
  • 55:49 - 55:53
    Please, sir.
  • 56:04 - 56:07
    Should we kill him?
  • 56:07 - 56:13
    Wait. Would you give a
    message to my family?
  • 56:13 - 56:15
    Sure.
  • 56:15 - 56:22
    Or could I speak to them
    one last time?
  • 56:22 - 56:26
    No way.
  • 56:29 - 56:33
    Okay pull.
  • 56:38 - 56:45
    Lower your head.
  • 56:46 - 56:48
    He's dead.
  • 56:52 - 56:55
    Wrap him up.
  • 57:15 - 57:20
    Listen, if we succeed
    in making this film -
  • 57:20 - 57:26
    - it will disprove all the propaganda
    about the communists being cruel.
  • 57:26 - 57:29
    - And show that we were cruel!
    - We're the cruel ones.
  • 57:30 - 57:36
    If this film is a success! We must
    understand every step we take here.
  • 57:36 - 57:40
    It's not about fear
    it's 40 years ago...
  • 57:41 - 57:45
    ...so any criminal case has expired.
  • 57:45 - 57:50
    It's not about fear it's about
    image. The whole society will say:
  • 57:50 - 57:57
    'We always suspected it. They lied
    about the communists being cruel.'
  • 57:57 - 58:01
    it's not a problem for us.
    It's a problem for history.
  • 58:01 - 58:09
    The whole story will be reversed.
    Not 180 degrees... 360 degrees!
  • 58:09 - 58:12
    If we succeed with this scene!
  • 58:13 - 58:21
    But why should we always hide
    our history if that's the truth?
  • 58:22 - 58:25
    No, the consequence is...
  • 58:25 - 58:29
    ...that everything Anwar
    and I have always said is false.
  • 58:29 - 58:32
    It's not the communists
    who were cruel.
  • 58:32 - 58:36
    - But that’s true!
    - I completely agree.
  • 58:37 - 58:42
    But not everything true
    should be made public.
  • 58:42 - 58:46
    I believe even God has secrets.
  • 58:47 - 58:51
    I'm absolutely aware
    that we were cruel.
  • 58:53 - 58:57
    That's all I have to say
  • 58:57 - 59:02
    it's up to you what to do about it.
  • 59:38 - 59:44
    I don't mean to make you
    uncomfortable, but I have to ask...
  • 59:44 - 59:49
    By telling yourself it was 'war',
    you're not haunted like Anwar.
  • 59:49 - 59:54
    But the Geneva Conventions
    define what you did as 'war crimes'.
  • 59:54 - 59:58
    I don't necessarily agree
    with those international laws.
  • 59:59 - 60:03
    When Bush was in power
    Guantanamo was right.
  • 60:04 - 60:09
    Saddam Hussein had
    weapons of mass destruction.
  • 60:09 - 60:16
    That was right according to Bush,
    but now it's wrong.
  • 60:17 - 60:22
    The Geneva Conventions may be
    today's morality but tomorrow -
  • 60:22 - 60:27
    - we'll have the Jakarta Conventions
    and dump the Geneva Conventions.
  • 60:28 - 60:33
    'War crimes' are defined
    by the winners.
  • 60:33 - 60:37
    I'm a winner So I can make
    my own definition.
  • 60:37 - 60:40
    I needn't follow
    the international definitions.
  • 60:41 - 60:47
    And more important,
    not everything true is good.
  • 60:47 - 60:52
    Some truths are not good.
    Like re-opening this case.
  • 60:53 - 60:56
    Even if everything you're finding out
    is true, it's not good.
  • 60:57 - 61:02
    But for millions of victims'
    families-
  • 61:02 - 61:07
    - if the truth comes out, it's good.
  • 61:07 - 61:13
    Fine, but start with the first
    murder Cain and Abel.
  • 61:13 - 61:17
    Why focus on killing
    the communists?
  • 61:17 - 61:20
    Americans killed the Indians.
  • 61:20 - 61:24
    Has anybody been
    punished for that? Punish them!
  • 61:24 - 61:28
    For me, re-opening this case
    is a provocation to fight.
  • 61:29 - 61:33
    I'm ready! If the world wants
    continuous war, I'm ready
  • 61:33 - 61:37
    if you wanna make
    us fight, I'm ready!
  • 61:37 - 61:44
    What if you were brought to the
    international court in the Hague?
  • 61:44 - 61:47
    - Now?
    - Yes.
  • 61:47 - 61:53
    I'd go! I don't feel guilty
    so why would I go?
  • 61:53 - 61:58
    Because I'd be famous.
    I'm ready!
  • 61:58 - 62:04
    Please, get me called
    to the Hague!
  • 62:09 - 62:12
    More hot!
  • 62:15 - 62:18
    More hot!
  • 62:21 - 62:24
    I like this... Eye candy.
  • 62:31 - 62:36
    This is healthy for a guy like me.
  • 62:42 - 62:44
    Enjoy the scenery Ma'am.
    Okay.
  • 62:44 - 62:48
    - One, two, three.
    - Ah!
  • 62:48 - 62:51
    - Again! One, two, three.
    - Ah!
  • 62:53 - 62:57
    I was asked to run for parliament.
  • 62:57 - 63:01
    'Why me?' 'Don't worry!
    You can do it!' they said.
  • 63:08 - 63:13
    Then I thought,
    'Why not?'.
  • 63:13 - 63:19
    In fact, I'm a perfect candidate
    because I'm well known!
  • 63:35 - 63:38
    Don't clench your fist.
  • 63:38 - 63:40
    Be quiet!
    I've almost got it!
  • 63:41 - 63:44
    - OK, but don't make a fist.
    - You're ruining the sound!
  • 63:44 - 63:47
    - But...
    - Stop it!
  • 63:47 - 63:52
    Be quiet!
    You're a real pain! Just shut up!
  • 63:53 - 63:57
    Long live the Businessmen and
    Workers Party! I am Herman...
  • 63:57 - 64:02
    ...ready to fight
    for workers' rights.
  • 64:02 - 64:06
    Remember to vote
    for me on election day!
  • 64:08 - 64:14
    If I get elected and get
    on the Building Commission -
  • 64:14 - 64:20
    - I can get money from everyone.
  • 64:21 - 64:25
    For example, if a building
    is 10 cm too small...
  • 64:27 - 64:30
    I can demand
    'Tear down the building!'.
  • 64:30 - 64:35
    They'll say, 'Please don't report us.
    Here's your money'.
  • 64:36 - 64:40
    Even if nothing's
    wrong with the building -
  • 64:40 - 64:44
    - if I threaten them,
    they'll give me money anyway.
  • 64:46 - 64:51
    Not just a little money
    In a block of 10 buildings...
  • 64:51 - 64:55
    if each pays $10000,
    just do the math!
  • 64:55 - 64:58
    That's already $100,000.
  • 65:00 - 65:03
    That's only one neighborhood!
  • 65:05 - 65:11
    Actually parliament should
    bethe most noble place in society.
  • 65:11 - 65:15
    But if we see
    what they do there...
  • 65:15 - 65:23
    They're really just
    robbers with ties.
  • 65:25 - 65:30
    What illegal businesses are
    Pancasila Youth involved in?
  • 65:30 - 65:33
    Gambling.
  • 65:33 - 65:37
    Gambling, night clubs.
  • 65:37 - 65:40
    Supermarkets.
  • 65:40 - 65:44
    But that’s not illegal.
    They just hire us as security.
  • 65:44 - 65:48
    - The illegal ones?
    - Gambling.
  • 65:48 - 65:51
    - Any others?
    - Smuggling.
  • 65:51 - 65:57
    Illegal fishing, illegal logging,
    illegal gambling...
  • 65:58 - 66:02
    ...and if they don't pay
    we blackmail them.
  • 66:04 - 66:06
    Let's welcome our candidate,
    Marzuki!
  • 66:06 - 66:09
    Long live our party!
  • 66:10 - 66:11
    Pancasila!
  • 66:13 - 66:16
    Ready!
  • 66:16 - 66:20
    What am I supposed to say?
    How does it begin?
  • 66:20 - 66:24
    - What's the first sentence?
    - I'm Herman.
  • 66:24 - 66:27
    - I'm Herman!
    - Stand up, you'll look better.
  • 66:28 - 66:31
    Ladies and gentlemen... What
    comes next? I can't remember
  • 66:31 - 66:38
    I'm Herman, from the Businessmen
    and Workers' Party!
  • 66:44 - 66:48
    - Any free T-shirts?
    - Nope... Ma'am, here's my card.
  • 66:49 - 66:51
    T-shirts! We want presents!
  • 66:51 - 66:56
    Don't worry about money or presents.
    We'll come back with gifts.
  • 66:57 - 67:00
    Pray for us, hopefully he'll win.
  • 67:00 - 67:02
    Tell people
    who ask for presents...
  • 67:03 - 67:06
    'We'll come back with gifts
    if we win.'
  • 67:06 - 67:10
    Tell them, 'We're filming today'
  • 67:11 - 67:14
    - Don't forget.
    - Just a card?
  • 67:14 - 67:17
    Where's 'the bonus'?
    Don't we get anything else?
  • 67:17 - 67:20
    - 'The bonus' comes later.
    - Once you're elected?
  • 67:20 - 67:25
    - Honey where do you think you are?
    - Yes, but...
  • 67:26 - 67:33
    Many of the parties
    bribe people to vote for them.
  • 67:33 - 67:36
    In fact, they all do.
  • 67:37 - 67:41
    And when you see thousands
    of people at a rally -
  • 67:41 - 67:45
    - all of them
    were paid to be there.
  • 67:48 - 67:53
    They consider it going to work.
  • 67:54 - 67:56
    Without money they won't come.
  • 67:57 - 68:01
    They'll ask each other,
    'how much did you get?'.
  • 68:04 - 68:08
    And leaders just get paid more!
  • 68:14 - 68:22
    Nowadays, nobody believes
    in what they're campaigning for.
  • 68:26 - 68:29
    We've all become
    like soap opera actors.
  • 68:32 - 68:36
    Our souls have become
    like soap opera actors.
  • 68:37 - 68:40
    They look happy,
    but inside they’re pissed off!
  • 68:40 - 68:44
    Fuck this shit, they're thinking.
  • 69:10 - 69:12
    Where's the injured one?
  • 69:18 - 69:21
    Where’s the crippled one?
  • 69:21 - 69:24
    - Which?
    - The injured one.
  • 69:24 - 69:28
    There she is.
  • 69:28 - 69:32
    - Sweet little duck.
    - Don't! You'll hurt her again.
  • 69:35 - 69:39
    She's weak
    because you broke her leg.
  • 69:42 - 69:47
    Don't do that.
    She's a baby!
  • 69:48 - 69:52
    Say 'I’m sorry Duck.'
  • 69:52 - 69:54
    - I'm sorry Duck.
    - That's it.
  • 69:54 - 69:59
    Now say 'lt was an accident.
    I was scared, so I hit you.'
  • 69:59 - 70:02
    Say 'lt was an accident.'
    Speak loudly.
  • 70:03 - 70:07
    - Sorry Duck.
    - And pet her a little.
  • 70:15 - 70:20
    Now the communist
    has become a ghost.
  • 70:20 - 70:28
    He was killed and became a ghost.
  • 70:28 - 70:31
    - Haunting you.
    - Haunting me.
  • 70:31 - 70:34
    Do you feel trauma seeing this?
  • 70:34 - 70:41
    If he came to me at night,
    I'd be terrified.
  • 70:41 - 70:46
    It's like the ghosts hate me.
  • 70:46 - 70:50
    Because in my dreams they
    have threatening voices...
  • 70:50 - 70:56
    - They laugh, but frighteningly!
    - Try to laugh.
  • 71:02 - 71:04
    Anwar's nightmare, take 2.
  • 71:05 - 71:06
    Standby.
  • 71:06 - 71:08
    Record.
  • 71:20 - 71:24
    I thought I killed you!
  • 71:28 - 71:32
    - What did I do wrong?
    - Just get up, surprised.
  • 71:32 - 71:39
    And ask, 'Why are you alive?'
    What's so hard about it?
  • 71:46 - 71:50
    I... I thought I killed you!
  • 72:15 - 72:18
    Why am I coming to this place?
  • 72:20 - 72:27
    Because it affected me so deeply.
  • 72:30 - 72:34
    Because the method of killing...
  • 72:36 - 72:39
    ...was very different.
  • 72:39 - 72:46
    And that's why I always
    have nightmares.
  • 72:46 - 72:51
    Is it because I've been
    telling you my story so honestly?
  • 72:59 - 73:07
    Or maybe
    the vengeance of the dead?
  • 73:11 - 73:15
    I remember... I said
    'Get out of the car'.
  • 73:16 - 73:19
    He asked,
    'Where are you taking me?'.
  • 73:20 - 73:25
    Soon, he refused to keep walking...
  • 73:26 - 73:31
    I saw Roshiman bringing me
    a machete.
  • 73:33 - 73:40
    Spontaneously I walked over to him
    and cut his head off.
  • 73:41 - 73:47
    My friends didn't want to look.
  • 73:47 - 73:51
    They ran back to the car.
  • 73:52 - 73:55
    And I heard this sound...
  • 73:59 - 74:04
    His body had fallen down...
  • 74:05 - 74:09
    And the eyes in his head
    were still...
  • 74:22 - 74:26
    On the way home, I kept thinking,
    why didn't I close his eyes?
  • 74:27 - 74:32
    All I could think about was
    why didn't I close his eyes?
  • 74:32 - 74:38
    And that is the source
    of all my nightmares...
  • 74:38 - 74:45
    I'm always gazed at by those
    eyes that I didn't close.
  • 74:45 - 74:51
    That's what always
    disturbs me so very much.
  • 76:01 - 76:04
    Slit his throat!
  • 76:04 - 76:08
    Cut off his head!
  • 76:13 - 76:16
    Hooray!
  • 76:35 - 76:38
    Did you take it?
    Is it good?
  • 76:38 - 76:40
    - Thank you.
    - No, thank you, Sir.
  • 76:40 - 76:44
    No. With such a beautiful girl?
    I should thank you.
  • 76:47 - 76:52
    Too bad she bleaches her hair...
    Makes her look like a whore.
  • 76:57 - 77:00
    - Tell him about the car!
    - What happened?
  • 77:00 - 77:03
    There was this girl...
  • 77:03 - 77:05
    She sucked off six men -
  • 77:05 - 77:08
    - and not a drop of cum on the floor.
  • 77:08 - 77:11
    - Six men?
    - She swallowed it all.
  • 77:11 - 77:15
    And after the last guy finishes,
    she's still sucking -
  • 77:15 - 77:19
    - like she wanted more!
  • 77:26 - 77:34
    Dear God, make our great
    organization a pillar of this nation.
  • 77:38 - 77:42
    You know the price of the land?
    200 million dollars.
  • 77:44 - 77:47
    I gave it to the birds.
  • 77:49 - 77:53
    So they have a happy life.
    I'm also happy.
  • 77:55 - 77:58
    Everybody's terrified of
    the paramilitaries.
  • 77:59 - 78:04
    So, when a businessman wants
    land where people are living...
  • 78:04 - 78:08
    if he just pays for it,
    it's expensive.
  • 78:08 - 78:14
    But we can solve his problem.
  • 78:15 - 78:20
    Because people are terrified of us,
    when we show up -
  • 78:20 - 78:25
    - they say 'Just take the land.
    Pay what you like.'
  • 78:28 - 78:31
    This is a rose.
  • 78:32 - 78:34
    Very very limited.
  • 78:38 - 78:42
    Elephant.
    This is very very limited.
  • 78:45 - 78:49
    I buy these
    from every country I visit.
  • 78:50 - 78:54
    Hungary
    2,250 dollars.
  • 79:28 - 79:32
    You've cut off my head...
  • 79:32 - 79:38
    You have to be furious,
    but also sad.
  • 79:38 - 79:43
    You have to be angry sad.
    Sadistic.
  • 79:43 - 79:46
    Look at your blood!
  • 79:50 - 79:54
    Look what I found
    in your stomach!
  • 80:00 - 80:05
    Look at this!
    Your liver.
  • 80:13 - 80:16
    It's rotten!
  • 81:06 - 81:10
    Even in make-up he looks like
    he's from Ethiopia!
  • 81:11 - 81:16
    - Tanzania. Like Idi Amin.
    - Idi Amin Dada.
  • 81:21 - 81:27
    Camera 3 on Citra!
    Close up on Citra for the opening.
  • 81:28 - 81:32
    Everybody ready?
    Roll the leader!
  • 81:36 - 81:40
    Indonesian National Television
    'Special Dialogue'
  • 81:41 - 81:45
    Welcome back to Indonesian
    Television's Special Dialogue.
  • 81:46 - 81:49
    Today we meet movie theater
    gangsters who are making a film -
  • 81:49 - 81:51
    -to commemorate the
    crushing of the communists.
  • 81:52 - 81:56
    We go straight to the perpetrator
    and star of the film, Anwar Congo!
  • 81:56 - 81:59
    Let's welcome Anwar Congo!
  • 82:00 - 82:04
    In those days movie theater
    gangsters were very well known.
  • 82:04 - 82:08
    What's the origin of
    the word 'gangster'?
  • 82:08 - 82:12
    Actually gangster comes
    from 'free men'.
  • 82:12 - 82:17
    That's why we use
    a special song in our movie.
  • 82:18 - 82:23
    A song called 'Born Free.'
  • 82:24 - 82:27
    So you brought the communists
    straight to your office?
  • 82:27 - 82:35
    Yes, and after we interrogated them,
    and decided they shouldn't be alive-
  • 82:35 - 82:39
    - we had to kill them.
  • 82:39 - 82:44
    And was your method of killing
    inspired by gangsterfilms?
  • 82:44 - 82:46
    Sometimes!
  • 82:46 - 82:48
    It's like...
  • 82:48 - 82:52
    Amazing!
    He was inspired by films!
  • 82:52 - 82:57
    Each genre had its own method.
    Like in mafia movies...
  • 82:57 - 83:04
    ...they strangle the guy in
    the car and dump the body.
  • 83:04 - 83:06
    So we did that too.
  • 83:06 - 83:11
    Which means Anwar
    and his friends developed -
  • 83:11 - 83:15
    - a new, more efficient system
    for exterminating communists.
  • 83:15 - 83:20
    It was more humane, less sadistic,
    and avoided excessive violence...
  • 83:20 - 83:25
    But you also just wiped them out!
  • 83:28 - 83:34
    - How many people did he kill?
    - About 1000.
  • 83:35 - 83:39
    How can he sleep?
    Isn't he haunted?
  • 83:39 - 83:42
    - A lot of them went crazy.
    - Yeah.
  • 83:42 - 83:46
    - No, they got rich.
    - Yeah.
  • 83:46 - 83:50
    Rich from stealing.
  • 83:50 - 83:54
    But killing all those people
    made them crazy too.
  • 83:55 - 84:01
    But what’s the special meaning
    of this film for young people?
  • 84:01 - 84:07
    Young people must remember
    their history.
  • 84:07 - 84:11
    They must never forget.
    What's more...
  • 84:11 - 84:14
    God must be against communists.
  • 84:14 - 84:17
    Yes. God hates communists!
  • 84:17 - 84:20
    That's why he's made
    this film so beautiful!
  • 84:20 - 84:27
    According to General Sarwo Edhie
    2.5 million communists were killed.
  • 84:27 - 84:32
    Why haven’t the victims'
    children ever tried to take revenge?
  • 84:32 - 84:39
    It's not that they don't want
    to take revenge. They can't!
  • 84:39 - 84:43
    Because we'd exterminate them all!
  • 84:58 - 85:05
    This is the only film shoot to be
    visited by a government minister.
  • 85:05 - 85:12
    He's coming here just for you,
    to motivate and support you!
  • 85:13 - 85:15
    You should be proud!
  • 85:23 - 85:26
    The whole world will see this.
    London, England!
  • 85:27 - 85:29
    Forget Jakarta.
    Jakarta is nothing!
  • 85:35 - 85:39
    Wow! All the killers are here!
  • 85:44 - 85:48
    Just improvise
    and express your anger.
  • 85:48 - 85:50
    Scream, 'Crush the communists!'
  • 85:51 - 85:56
    - Crush the communists!
    - Wipe them out!
  • 85:56 - 85:59
    Okay let’s try it.
  • 86:00 - 86:04
    Attack on Kampung Kolam. Take 1.
  • 86:05 - 86:09
    Don't let any communists escape!
  • 86:11 - 86:15
    Kill! Kill!
    Kill the communists!
  • 86:16 - 86:20
    Slaughterthem!
  • 86:20 - 86:22
    Are you ready to attack?
  • 86:23 - 86:28
    Take no prisoners!
    Destroy them all!
  • 86:30 - 86:33
    Burn down their houses!
  • 86:34 - 86:40
    Kill the communists!
    Chop them up!
  • 86:40 - 86:45
    Exterminate them to their roots!
  • 86:46 - 86:53
    Chop off their heads
    Burn them! Kill them all!
  • 86:54 - 86:57
    Kill! Kill!
  • 87:04 - 87:09
    Cut! Cut! Cut!
  • 87:09 - 87:16
    Joshua and crew, now I'm speaking
    as a leader of Pancasila Youth.
  • 87:17 - 87:23
    What we’ve just shown is not
    characteristic of our organization.
  • 87:23 - 87:28
    We shouldn't look brutal,
    like we want to drink people's blood.
  • 87:34 - 87:41
    That's dangerous
    for our organization's image.
  • 87:41 - 87:45
    But we must exterminate
    the communists.
  • 87:46 - 87:48
    We must totally
    wipe them out-
  • 87:49 - 87:54
    - but in a more humane way.
  • 87:54 - 87:59
    What we just filmed,
    I felt awful...
  • 87:59 - 88:02
    Especially with my image
    right in the middle of it!
  • 88:02 - 88:04
    OK, Joshua?
  • 88:04 - 88:09
    This is the true story
    That's what we all want, right?
  • 88:09 - 88:12
    Sure. Sure.
  • 88:12 - 88:14
    You know, what we just filmed...
  • 88:14 - 88:20
    Don't erase it! Use it to show
    how ferocious we can be!
  • 88:20 - 88:25
    In fact, we can even be worse!
  • 88:25 - 88:32
    So, think of it as
    a simulation of our rage -
  • 88:32 - 88:37
    - if anyone disturbs our country
  • 88:44 - 88:47
    If they're pretty I'd rape them all.
  • 88:47 - 88:54
    Especially back then,
    when we were the law.
  • 88:54 - 88:56
    Fuck 'em!
  • 88:56 - 89:00
    Fuck the shit
    out of everyone I meet.
  • 89:00 - 89:05
    Are you a communist woman?
  • 89:05 - 89:09
    What are you hiding there?
  • 89:09 - 89:11
    That’s the spirit!
  • 89:12 - 89:17
    Especially if you get one
    who's only 14 years old.
  • 89:17 - 89:18
    Delicious!
  • 89:18 - 89:25
    I'd say it's gonna be hell for you
    but heaven on earth for me.
  • 89:25 - 89:27
    Keep struggling.
  • 89:28 - 89:30
    No one wants to be tortured, right?
  • 89:31 - 89:34
    If you can save yourself,
    you should.
  • 89:34 - 89:38
    And if you can
    run away go ahead!
  • 89:38 - 89:40
    Attention everybody!
  • 89:41 - 89:44
    While you're acting,
    remember the cameras!
  • 89:46 - 89:50
    Ladies, think positively
  • 89:50 - 89:53
    if you think positively -
  • 89:53 - 89:59
    - your acting will be great
    and the scene will succeed.
  • 90:00 - 90:02
    Positive! Think positive!
  • 90:40 - 90:42
    Kill them all!
  • 90:45 - 90:48
    Catch him!
  • 91:40 - 91:45
    Cut! Cut! Cut!
  • 91:49 - 91:52
    Bakti! Bring water!
  • 92:10 - 92:14
    Let her rest.
  • 92:41 - 92:47
    Febby your acting was great.
    But stop crying.
  • 92:48 - 92:55
    You're embarassing me.
    Film stars only cry for a moment.
  • 93:02 - 93:07
    What I regret... Honestly I never
    expected it would look this awful.
  • 93:14 - 93:19
    My friends kept telling me
    to act more sadistic -
  • 93:20 - 93:25
    - but then I saw
    the women and children.
  • 93:27 - 93:30
    Imagine those children's future.
  • 93:31 - 93:33
    They've been tortured...
  • 93:33 - 93:36
    Now their houses
    will be burned down...
  • 93:36 - 93:40
    What future do they have?
  • 93:41 - 93:46
    They will curse us
    for the rest of their lives.
  • 93:46 - 93:50
    This was so very very very..
  • 94:54 - 94:57
    When you say 'karma'...
  • 94:57 - 95:01
    What does it mean for you?
    What are you afraid of?
  • 95:03 - 95:11
    Karma is like a law of nature.
  • 95:15 - 95:20
    A law straight from God.
  • 95:26 - 95:29
    Imagine, in all this darkness -
  • 95:30 - 95:36
    - it's like we're living
    at the end of the world.
  • 95:38 - 95:42
    We look around...
    There's only darkness.
  • 95:46 - 95:49
    It's so very terrifying.
  • 96:17 - 96:23
    Hit the table.
    To frighten me.
  • 96:23 - 96:27
    Start by hitting the table. Hard.
  • 96:42 - 96:46
    Trying to ban American films
    in Indonesia?
  • 96:46 - 96:49
    What are you trying to do?
  • 96:51 - 96:53
    Shut up!
  • 96:53 - 96:57
    - What are you trying to do?
    - Please, sir..
  • 96:57 - 97:02
    Don't get friendly with me!
    We're not friends!
  • 97:02 - 97:04
    Answer the questions!
  • 97:05 - 97:10
    Hurry up
    or I'll break your legs!
  • 97:10 - 97:13
    Dana, ask!
  • 97:13 - 97:17
    Besides Titi Kuning,
    where else are you active?
  • 97:17 - 97:22
    - Hamparan Perak.
    - A real big communist.
  • 97:23 - 97:27
    Quick! Don't waste our time!
  • 97:28 - 97:32
    Lift up your hand
    or I'll cut it off.
  • 97:32 - 97:36
    Hey look! Gold!
  • 97:37 - 97:41
    Take off your watch.
  • 97:41 - 97:45
    Put it on the table.
    What else do you have?
  • 97:45 - 97:49
    A ring? Gold?
  • 97:49 - 97:53
    Talk or I cut your face.
  • 97:53 - 97:57
    - Talk.
    - Tell us everything!
  • 97:57 - 98:03
    - Please, don't...
    - I won't, but you talk!
  • 98:03 - 98:06
    Talk...
  • 98:07 - 98:09
    Cut.
  • 98:26 - 98:28
    Okay let's do it.
  • 98:41 - 98:49
    I place this medal
    around your neck.
  • 99:35 - 99:40
    - Are you alright?
    - I can't do that again.
  • 100:04 - 100:08
    Get him some water.
  • 100:12 - 100:16
    Have some water.
  • 100:54 - 101:00
    We shoved wood in their anus
    until they died.
  • 101:01 - 101:05
    We crushed their necks
    with wood. We hung them.
  • 101:05 - 101:10
    We strangled them with wire.
    We cut off their heads.
  • 101:10 - 101:13
    We ran them over with cars.
  • 101:17 - 101:19
    We were allowed to do it.
  • 101:19 - 101:24
    And the proof is, we murdered
    people and were never punished.
  • 101:30 - 101:34
    The people we killed... There's
    nothing to be done about it.
  • 101:34 - 101:37
    They have to accept it.
  • 101:38 - 101:43
    Maybel Im just trying to make
    myself feel better but it works:
  • 101:43 - 101:48
    I've never felt guilty, never been
    depressed, never had nightmares.
  • 103:07 - 103:15
    For executing me
    and sending me to heaven.
  • 103:15 - 103:21
    I thank you a thousand
    times, for everything.
  • 103:52 - 103:56
    This is great, Joshua.
    This is very good.
  • 103:56 - 104:02
    I never imagined
    I could make something so great.
  • 104:04 - 104:07
    One thing that makes me
    so proud -
  • 104:08 - 104:12
    - is how the waterfall
    expresses such deep feelings!
  • 104:16 - 104:23
    You know the scene
    where I'm strangled with wire?
  • 104:26 - 104:29
    - Do you have it here?
    - Where you're strangled?
  • 104:29 - 104:32
    Please put it on.
  • 104:37 - 104:39
    Yan?
  • 104:40 - 104:43
    I want him to watch this...
  • 104:49 - 104:53
    - Yan?
    - He's in bed.
  • 104:55 - 105:00
    Yan, watch the scene
    where grandpa is tortured and killed.
  • 105:00 - 105:04
    Ami, come see grandpa beaten up
    and bleeding.
  • 105:05 - 105:07
    But this is too violent.
  • 105:07 - 105:11
    Watch this.
    Grandpa gets beaten up.
  • 105:12 - 105:14
    Turn up the volume.
  • 105:15 - 105:18
    But this is too violent, Anwar
    Are you sure?
  • 105:18 - 105:21
    Yes, it's fine.
    Will you be scared, Yan?
  • 105:27 - 105:31
    This is only a film...
    Look at that.
  • 105:32 - 105:37
    Grandpa looks so sad,
    doesn't he, Yan?
  • 105:37 - 105:39
    So scary
  • 105:40 - 105:45
    it's so sad, isn't it?
    That's your grandpa.
  • 105:46 - 105:52
    That's grandpa being
    beaten up by the fat guy.
  • 105:52 - 105:55
    Grandpa's head is smashed.
  • 106:33 - 106:38
    Did the people I tortured feel
    the way I do here?
  • 106:48 - 106:53
    I can feel what the people
    I tortured felt.
  • 106:53 - 107:01
    Because here my dignity
    has been destroyed...
  • 107:02 - 107:06
    ...and then fear comes,
    right there and then.
  • 107:06 - 107:11
    All the terror suddenly
    possessed my body
  • 107:11 - 107:16
    it surrounded me,
    and possessed me.
  • 107:17 - 107:23
    Actually the people you tortured
    felt far worse-
  • 107:23 - 107:28
    - because you know it's only a film.
    They knew they were being killed.
  • 107:32 - 107:36
    But I can feel it, Josh.
    Really I feel it.
  • 107:36 - 107:41
    Or have I sinned?
  • 107:46 - 107:51
    I did this to so many people, Josh.
  • 107:52 - 107:56
    Is it all coming back to me?
  • 108:02 - 108:09
    I really hope it won't.
    I don't want it to, Josh.
  • 109:19 - 109:24
    This is where we tortured and
    killed the people we captured.
  • 109:47 - 109:50
    I know it was wrong -
  • 109:50 - 109:54
    - but I had to do it.
  • 111:03 - 111:07
    This is...
  • 111:10 - 111:15
    This is one of the easiest
    ways to take a human life.
  • 111:19 - 111:22
    And this...
  • 111:23 - 111:28
    This was used to take away..
  • 111:31 - 111:35
    ...the human beings we killed.
  • 111:35 - 111:38
    Because without this...
  • 111:39 - 111:43
    ...maybe people would know.
