"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."
"My first encounter with even thinking about politics, what it meant to be an American and thinking that it wasn’t secure, came as a real jolt when I became aware of the Second World War, maybe in my last year in high school. Being a Midwesterner from Chicago, I didn’t really think we were vulnerable until the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. We were literally oceans apart from the rest of the world until then, not just physically but mentally."
