I understand art as de-arrangement of concepts, to shift and defocuse reality. So what does that mean? Storytelling is powerful. Film is fun, film can be fun, but if its just to manifest the position of those, who benefit from the imperialist system, its not mine. In my vision, the collection of our films and stories give a proper understanding of who we are and what we need to do to create a better life. The filmmaking process can not be seperated from the subject, so I appreciate working with filmmakers who dont hesitate to question themselves.
