You Didn’t See Anything!
Director David Schwartz and actor Alex Fifea read about the death case in a newspaper article which sparked their interest. It was clear that it did not happen as it was written in the first police statement: Dani’s death was not an accident. Thus, the local NGOs began to investigate the crime. The members of the artistic troupe followed Dani’s case for a whole year, they sat throughout the negotiations, they read every testimony. They also got acquainted with the illegal parkers lifestyle and made interviews with the victim’s family and acquaintances.
The play was written based on these notes and sound recordings.
Police wanted to cover up the case: about 30 police officers confessed to “seeing nothing”, to knowing nothing about what had happened. According to their narrative Dani died because he was ill. But police brutality has a long history in this area.
