"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."
"’A Journey that Wasn’t.’ It’s called that because the journey happened . . . or did not. It was also kind of a mental journey, and maybe that’s the one I’m most interested in. I think of it as a process. The film is literally a process, a process of finding an idea and bringing it to light. You start with a hypothesis. If ‘if’ is my starting point, it’s that I’m trying to imagine that elsewhere- an island- should exist. I’ve heard that people say there is an albino penguin on this island. It’s a rumor; I’ve read about it. And on this hypothesis I take a boat, a real boat, and I try to find out if this hypothesis is true or not true."
