In a span of a year, between an estimated 500,000 and 1,000,000 people were killed in Indonesia when General Suharto's new regime took over. The new government wiped the events from memory. Robert Lemelson's documentary 40 Years of Silence: An Indonesian Tragedy is an intimate compilation of stories and testimonies from the people who survived in the midst of slaughter, political unrest and gross human rights violations, and today live among neighbors who don't acknowledge the things that happened. A special screening will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A on the heels of June's release of Indonesia's National Commission on Human Rights report. West End Cinema. 7 p.m. Free.

Gary Jules gained recognition with his cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World" featured in Donnie Darko. The indie-acoustic singer-songwriter releases his newest album at Jammin' Java. 8 p.m. $15.
