Documentary recounts the story of Indonesia's genocide

The documentary 'The Act of Killing' by filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer tells the story of the Indonesian death squad leaders who presided over the executions of more than a million people in 1965. These death squad leaders helped the Indonesian military kill alleged communists, ethnic Chinese and intellectuals. Director Joshua Oppenheimer and Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik join us to discuss the film. (Photo: AP Images).
