"The Joy of Killing: Perpetrators, Violence and Media"

"The Joy of Killing" deals with the Indonesian genocide and its representation in Joshua Oppenheimer's documentaries from 2012 and 2014. I will explore how media is not only a tool to capture and "witness" violence, but how the framing of media itself can become the vehicle for violence to be transported.
