ABOUT FILM BLOG

“Seeing comes before words. The child looks and recognises before it can speak. But it is also another sense in which seeing comes before words. It is seeing which establishes our place in the surrounding world; we explain that world with words, but words can never undo the fact we are surround by it. The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. The way we see things is affected by what we believe” John Berger
