Personal Quote:

The camera is there, so there is interaction. There is always a performance. I don't believe in absolute reality. I want to use the language of film in order to transform that into something else. What I film is real; it's there, it's not written. They are not actors, but they are performing. Once you put yourself in front of the camera, no matter what, you change. [2020] See more »
