Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Jim Jarmusch at the Lincoln Center, New York, April 2014: "Robby Müller, I learned so much from this man about filmmaking, about a lot of things, about life in general and about light and about recording things and about capturing things in the moment and about trusting instincts.
