MPAA Rated PG - 13 for thematic material involving disturbing graphic descriptions of atrocities and inhumanity

Sex & Nudity

  • There is a very brief fleeting scene in the film depicting frontal nudity where the genitalia of an old, bed-ridden man is glimpsed as he is being moved onto a bed.

Violence & Gore

  • The film contains graphic verbal descriptions of the violence exacted on numerous communists in Indonesia, though no actual footage of the killings is shown.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film asserts that the mass killing of over 1 million communists by the government was a political ploy to quell potential opposition. This mature theme is discussed throughout the documentary, and is very unsettling.
