"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"What I’m doing in the film is thinking about Oppenheimer in Purgatory. So I set it in a tropical jungle. He’s standing on water, surrounded by hundred- year-old ferns, but this flora speaks of the tropics rather than of Los Alamos. And he’s caught there and the camera just revolves around him. So even though it’s a moving image (that is, it moves in time), think of it as a photograph that has time."
