YOU CAN’T WATCH THIS
‘You Can’t Watch This’ is a three fold experience surrounding this authentic story:
1) an immersive and interactive audiovisual installation, based on sound AR
2) a poetic true crime podcast
3) a flat / 2D film investigating the aftermath of the story
In 1973 the drug addict John L.’s last fix and dying moment was documented by a film maker, but the wealthy mother of John L. got the film with this very moment banned and placed in a vault outside Copenhagen, Denmark. It has never been shown publicly.
