The lead character of the film Memento lost his memory. That’s why he tattooed everything, he doesn’t want to forget, on his whole body. The most important thing is written on is left hand: “remember Sammy Jankis”.
A friend of mine runs on his treadmill every evening and thinks of the running steps scene in rocky.
My sister believes in eternal love like in titanic.
Another one looks at digitalization with eagle eyes because he saw matrix.
When I look at my left hand, I read “Memento”. It reminds me, that films do something with us and leave something in us (or on us).
It is the rule of art: Reality manipulates fiction and fiction manipulates reality.
That´s why i am a filmmaker.
