Personal Quotes (2)

Basically, all my films are about people trying to avoid losing face.
[on The Square (2017)] I don't think I'm pointing at other people, I'm pointing at the academic middle-class that I'm part of. Many of the scenes were made with the goal of, "We'll have a film in Competition at Cannes - we'll have an audience sitting there in tuxedos, looking at this guy in a tuxedo digging in the trash." I always try to use the movies as a mirror of myself and of the social group that I belong to.
