[-empyre-] vampyre/empyre


when making my film on the West Bank last year (I went 9 times the lst years, long periods) , I felt so stupid many times - because I realized how little I understand and that I can never fully understand - and who am I to make a film about others!
And I said to my Palestinian friends: I feel stupid! They replied: "Cecilia, you don't represent us, you understand a little, but not all, you are not our voice, you are making your film and your interpretation and represent you in this context."
I felt very good being reminded that.
And I need to remind myself over and over again.

They said they like people who stay and try to understand everyday life, but have little confidence in news and media. Art gives time and space for the kind of work that is politics, but not serve the politics
