Personal Quote:

(on differences between a European and American film) European films are not successful cause they are constructed respecting a system. you get a loan from any small mafia type pizza restaurant owner around the block to make your film in the USA and the results are so vivid you can smell the pizza.

Made an installation exhibition with two scales hanging from a scale at Bess Cutler gallery n New York in 1992. he suggested that the word Manhattan is not an American Indian word but a German word (Man Hat Getan) meaning man has made it. the other side of the installation was called Godhattan which is the script of another film by Shokof meaning God has made it (God Hat Getan)in German.
