“Our battle, our struggle, is to create art. Our weapon is the moving picture. Because we have the moving picture, our paintings will grow and recede. Our poetry will be shadows that lengthen and conceal. Our light will play across living faces that laugh and agonize. And our music will linger and finally overwhelm because it will have context as certain as the grave. We are scientists engaged in the creation of memory. But our memory will neither blur…nor fade.”

Shadow of the Vampire (2000)

Dir. E. Elias Merhige
