Not What Happened is rooted in the politics of historical reenactment – the recreation of the past for the present. It's a contrapuntal duet for two people who could never meet: the historical re-enactor and the person they re-enact.
What do we purposefully eliminate in order to speak of our ourselves – how do those gaps effect the historic record – and from that record what gets cut out in order to make a story viable to the casual visitor? Do we ever know what happened?
