Remarks shared after Festival visit

“After attending the 34th Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival and visiting this 'fairy tale city', I started to believe that it is very important for a place to be surrounded by arts regardless of their forms. As a creator or an audience, one needs to learn how to appreciate works seriously. We should keep watching more works which come from places outside Asia as they can really inspire us, especially for the aesthetic qualities. Besides, I met a director whose film was presented in the same unit “All about My Father” in the festival as mine. She is very interested in my work and we have exchanged email to keep in touch. “
