DESCRIPTION

It Never Really Happened is a visual and whimsical reworking of many of the signs and narrative tropes inherent in documentary, crime and forensic genres.

Questioning our obsession with certainty, it floats freely between conviction and confusion, trace evidence and trance, measurement and amusement.

Structured as a chaptered documentary, it posits a less “evidenciary” existence, where a widow can be happy, a fingerprint is simply something to be cleaned and a life sentence does not necessarily take place in a jail.
