The killers depicted in the film are considered heroes in Indonesia. Impunity persists in Indonesia for these crimes and for later ones committed by Indonesia's armed forces from the invasion and occupation of East Timor and to ongoing violations in West Papua. Human rights groups are supporting an appeal from survivors for the Indonesian government to acknowledge the truth about the 1965 crimes and to apologize and provide reparations to the victims and their families.
