Personal Quote:

I don't believe in inspiration that arrives like a bolt from the blue - if it doesn't also arise from your body and your immediate lived experience. That's why I always refer to 'subjective documentary'. It seems to me that the more motivated I am by what I film, the more objectively I film. See more »
