[Film Dokumenter] Shadow Play: Indonesia’s Years of Living Dangerously – Genosida Politik 1965-1966

Looking back on that pivotal year, SHADOW PLAY examines how British propaganda specialists worked with General Suharto to whip up anti-Communist sentiment and solidify the army’s position as heroes. It also reviews newly released communiqus from US and
Australian ambassadors revealing that Western powers allowed General Suharto to carry out mass murders so that the Indonesian domino would fall on the Western side of the Cold War divide.
Perhaps most shockingly, SHADOW PLAY hears from the only surviving leader of the September 30th movement, Colonel Latief, who endured 33 years in prison. Latief claims he informed General Suharto of their plans. He contends that the rebels had never intended to kill the generals, but only to bring them before President Sukarno to face charges of planning a coup against him. Some now believe it was General Suharto’s agents who infiltrated the movement to make sure the generals were killed, giving General Suharto the pretext to launch his purge and eventually take over Indonesia. Immediately after the murder of the generals, extensive foreign aid was provided by Western countries to the Indonesian military. Recently declassified documents contradict years of US government denials that American intelligence was working with the Indonesian army. The full extent of Western involvement awaits complete declassification of documents, which could take decades.
