A project by Cabula6
produced by The Advancing Performing Arts Project
A series of 6 short complimentary films ranging from 22 – 50 minutes investigating the ways in which inhabitants of 6 towns across Europe deal with a recent local criminal case that has somehow captured the public imagination. Concerned less with the “truth” of the cases, the films focus on how people retell the story, try to make sense of what happened and negotiate what it might mean for their collective identities. Interviewing people directly or peripherally involved in the case, government officials, people from the streets and those who have gathered their knowledge from the media, we approach the cases like five blind men describing an elephant.
