I have no advice for anyone on how to live.
Usually when I take my films to festivals, I feel incredibly anxious about them. I wonder how it will be received, how the audience will react. I feel deeply responsible for them.
I've often noticed that we are not able to look at what we have in front of us, unless it's inside a frame.
Usually when I write a script, I have in mind some real people that I'm writing about, who don't always act in the film afterward.
