To you, a filmmaker of a future generation,
I have no idea how you’ve come to cinema, but you have. And that means that you and I, we’re already speaking to each other from across time. I don't know what cinema is for you. What it is for me, from the way I see and experience movies to the way that I make them, it’s changing. At this moment in our history, absolutely everything is shifting. The way that you’re telling stories with moving pictures is probably a world away from what I know. And I thought I’d share this thought with you: if you’re burning to tell this story, if you’re seeing images and passages in your mind’s eye, you have to make your movie! Now you keep up your end of the conversation. And I’m looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
