Description

Events surrounding the murder of six of Indonesian's generals in 1965 have always been surrounded by controversy. This documentary takes advantage of recently declassified documents to try reconstruct what really happened, and also shows the extent to which Western powers were complicit in the anti-Communist purges that ended up killing hundreds of thousands of people.
