The Act of Killing (2012) - IMDb from IMDb
Directed by Joshua Oppenheimer, Anonymous, Christine Cynn. With Anwar Congo, Herman Koto, Syamsul Arifin, Ibrahim Sinik. A documentary which challenges former Indonesian death-squad leaders to reenact their mass-killings in whichever cinematic genres they wish, including classic Hollywood crime scenarios and lavish musical numbers.

A documentary with actual perpetrators re-enacting their murders during the genocide in Indonesia. As you watch it, you cannot help but wonder how come an entire nation is unable to realize and acknowledge all atrocities that took place, instead of celebrating them as a victory against the evil ‘communists’. An absolute must watch for everyone. Watch on Youtube

We have invented a mountain of superfluous needs. Shopping for new, discarding the old … That’s a waste of our lives! When I buy something, or when you buy it, you’re not paying money for it. You are paying with the hours of life you had to spend earning that money. The difference is that life is one thing that money can’t buy. Life only gets shorter. And it’s pitiful to waste one’s life and freedom that way.” – José Mujica, President of Uruguay #minimalism #minimalismo

Funny thing! I came across this song a couple of month ago. I really liked and kept on listening on replay. Then one day I decided to watch the actual video as it was playing and to my great surprise, I knew the singer. She is part of a church I used to attend. Listen to this again today as I read that the church is closing. Mixed feelings…
