Noa Pothoven’s case by varialambo

Research multimedia project, 2020-21

Produced by Palo Productions

Status: in development

Synopsis: A Dutch rape victim and mental health activist has starved herself to death at the age of 17 after her parents and the government decided not to force-feed her anymore. Varialambo’s approach under development is a speculative alternative reality for Noa Pothoven’s life ordeal.  “We like the idea of social fantasy. We like the state of over exhaustion and lasting plays. The repetition of given narratives is one of the last Dinosaurs on earth. It’s time to bury it with dignity but fast.”
