Indonesian students screen "The Look of Silence" despite protests

Students at Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University in Yogyakarta, Indonesia successfully held a screening and discussion of Joshua Oppenheimer's "The Look of Silence" ("Seynap") this Wednesday - despite protesters attempt to block the event.
Around a hundred protesters from the Yogyakarta Islamic People's Forum (FUI) and the Indonesian Anti-Communist Forum (FAKI) gathered outside the University before the screening, but where unable to enter the closed gates guarded by security.

The protesters claims that Oppenheimer's film promotes communism were repudiated by the University's rector, Ahmad Minhaji, who met with the mob of protesters and told them that the young students inside only wanted to learn about and discuss history.
The event's coordinator, Ahmad Haidar, told The Jakarta Globe that screenings will continue despite protesters' threats: "We will not concede as it is our right to fight for our academic freedom".
