How can cinema engage with complicity in crimes against humanity and extreme violence without conniving in it? DE FACTO finds answers to these questions in a meticulously directed play of two actors, a precisely compiled film script and a deliberately reduced setting. In long and static shots and separately from each other, two actors present texts that refer to concrete forms of dehumanisation and to the perpetration that goes with it. They are based on facts and are presented by the two characters – In the form of court transcripts, perpetrator statements and reports on everyday events.
