“Directing is to create a nonexistent world and capture it. A world based on reality but unique at the same time, inaccessible and with its own logic. Something similar happens when we dream. That is why talking about dreams is like talking about movies, they both use the same language: years can be explained in seconds and an instant can last an eternity.”
