Some Violence Is Required

What I want is to believe in Ventura, Vanda, the bottle, my shot. Nobody more than them. It's got to be pure in the Straubian sense. The camera is here and the distance between the subject has to be absolutely clear. The only thing I want to be certain of is this focal point. It's not money, power, charm, cinephilia. Nothing can make this distance correct other than knowing what that distance is.

Pedro Costa, MUBI

I offer you the memory of a yellow rose seen at
      sunset, years before you were born.
I offer you explanations of yourself, theories about
      yourself, authentic and surprising news of 
I can give you my loneliness, my darkness, the
      hunger of my heart; I am trying to bribe you 
      with uncertainty, with danger, with defeat.
                     - Jorge Luis Borges (1934)
