The film project 'Abolition Place Study' (working title) focuses on the social imaginary of a citizens’ collective that has emerged in response to a recent fatal case of police violence in the context of migration border control in Belgium. The film stages the collective’s (counter-)forensic investigation into the wider field of causalities, leading to an imagination of a thick or wild justice. Exploring a haptic and sensorial sonimage, the film attempts to construct a holding environment that can harbour a different way of hearing justice.
The film is currently in its development phase (2021-2022).
