'THE LOOK OF SILENCE' TO BE BROADCAST ON POV / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

On June 27th, Joshua Oppenheimer's Oscar®-Nominated The Look of Silence will be broadcast on the American public television series POV. This marks the second film by Final Cut for Real in this year's POV season, along with Pervert Park, directed by Frida and Lasse Barkfors.

Each season, POV premieres between 14 and 16 of the most distinguished programs on the American Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and is television’s longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films. 

“POV is privileged to bring the latest groundbreaking Joshua Oppenheimer film to American television audiences,” said POV Executive Producer Justine Nagan. “On the heels of The Act of Killing, The Look of Silence takes an important step in uncovering genocide as one man displays incredible courage in confronting his brother’s killers. Oppenheimer tells jarringly personal, profoundly moving stories that open up universal dialogue. His latest film epitomizes the skilled storytelling that viewers look for in our series.”
