What He Did

'What He Did' is the story of psychologist and author Jens Michael Schau, who in 1988 killed his boyfriend of 13 years, Christian Kampmann, in a fit og jealousy. Kampmann was at the peak of his literary career at the time, and had gone to the small Danish island Læsø with Jens Michael Schau to write the continuation of the beloved television series 'Matador'. During this stay something went wrong - but what and why? In 'What He Did' - which is made as an experimental dialogue between theatre and documentary - Schau tells his story for the first time.

In 2012 Jonas Poher Rasmussen won the NORDIC:DOX Award at CPH:DOX for Searching for Bill.
