“An insight one has gained should be tied to a place in this world, a stay, a sojourn. A little bit of world, some smell, form and colour, should be included. This makes insights tangible. Because it should be things, that have conveyed the insight. Place, time - should always be there. Truth is temporal and spatial.

The film can’t be speaker, reciter; it’d rather be expression and inspiration to get to an opening, to the opening of one’s ears.” – Merlyn Solakhan, Martin Manz
