‘How do you live your life, having done something unforgivable?’

In 1988 Jens Michael Schau killed his life companion of thirteen years in a jealousy fit. Schau was sentenced to ten years in prison and served his time in a psychiatric hospital. He was released after seven years. Today he lives an isolated life forever punishing himself for what he did.

“What He Did” is a coming out story about love and jealousy told through inventive interactions between film and theatre. Observational documentary is mixed with fiction as acclaimed theatre Mungo Park examines and reconstructs the events that came to a fatal end.
