Personal Quote:

It was my training in ink painting that really taught me how to see, and working in the film lab taught me the basics, the fundamental part of making pictures. When I first began making films, I never used a light meter. I had to judge with my eyes where to set the exposure. I didn't work with a light meter until "Rashomon." See more »
