“The power of the story sheds a light and great perspective on well-known facts. The power of cinema draws on that collective history.” – Cate Blanchett
“Modern-day cinema takes the form of a sermon. You don’t get to think, you only get to receive information.” – Gus Van Sant
“Cinematography is a writing with images in movement and with sounds.” – Robert Bresson
I didn’t have a normal academic career. I never studied cinema. I learned from life.
For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.
Anyone who’s made film and knows about the cinema has a lifelong love affair with the experience. You never stop learning about film.
