De Facto

Documentary Film, AT/DE 2023, digital, 130 min, OmeU

In tireless monologues, two actors recite testimonies and perpetrator statements from various unnamed conflicts in recent history. Without naming any reference to historical or political contexts, and detached from all emotion, the texts tell of a discarding of reason and unleashing of violence—of (in-)human abysses that De Facto penetrates with its uncompromising, insistent, and meticulously thought-out philosophical and literary treatment of perpetrators.
