“I wanted to make a film that had very little dialogue, that was more sensory, more like something as an experience that you felt, that kind of went through you. I wanted it to be almost an attack of sounds and images. And in some ways it was meant to be like a pop poem or something.
It's about girl empowerment, but it's also about kids, it's about a new generation, that there's no soul with the new generation. But there is a soul that is morphed, it's become something else. It's a new idea, it's a new vision. It's about kids who were raised on video games and youtube clips - television babies, and so the step from watching and viewing to doing is very very small, and in some ways they represent that kind of idea.
I can never, and have never made movies for everyone. I make a very specific type of film. At the same time this movie says a lot and nothing. I have nothing to prove, the movie has nothing to prove. The thing is, it's supposed to be about surfaces, the culture is about surfaces. It's meant to be like candy, and so if it makes people angry, that's fine. If people love it, that's fine. There's no right or wrong way to interpret this film.”
