"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
"Captain Tatarinov trembles from cold, shivers, and eats bad meat (Pantomime 6/E)," production still (2003)
"If there’s an aspect of the work (if, for example, we have to make a costume for an aboriginal from the Russian arctic) and we need to make a decision, certainly there’s research we can do to say, "This is what an aboriginal from the Russian arctic looks like." But sometimes it’s okay if we just guess because it’s the guessing and making of mistakes that then say something about what we don’t know. And that is a kind of truth."
