"I have realized with time that there must be another reason why I’m occupying myself so much with those drawings. And that is to keep a certain distance from what I hear people say over and over again about the same traumatic experience, repeating in the process of filming and editing in order to actualize and complete the statement in the present time...Somehow the process of sketching keeps me sane. Because I cannot relive each time what I hear. It will trigger my own experiences and trauma, whether I remember them or not. So I need to have something in between."
