"The reason I like this film is that even I, the filmmaker, get confused as to which parts were fiction and which documentary. It’s as if the film doesn’t belong to me, as if it had made itself; the main character was so strong, it was I who was being told what should be done. And when I saw the film, I realised it was not an artificial creation, but different; it increased my responsibility as a filmmaker. Cinema is no longer the panoramic experience it once was, with big budgets; cinema is -or ought to be- about analysing individual human experience, and how you can find yourself within that subjectivity. After making this film, I realised how I could identify with each of the characters, and how much of myself was in them."

#close up



emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.

this is important because so many people don’t know this
