I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude and inspiration

  • I think what I loved in cinema - and what I mean by cinema is not just films, but proper, classical cinema - are the extraordinary moments that can occur on screen. At the same time, I do feel that cinema and theater feed each other.
