Jean-Luc Godard: Some comment on the Movie Industry


Jean-Luc Godard: ( translation)
"We sometimes forget that cinema is people investing money and investing ideas, their heart."
"The actors invest their bodies in any case, the heart comes, comes later."
"One has  seldom seen a lot of technicians  investing in production, excuse me."
"Rarely has a lot of technicians invented equipment:  the Nagra was not  invented by a sound engineer."
"It's not you who invented the Arriflex."
"You don't even know who invented the Arriflex and why."
"You want me to tell you?"
"It was Hitler who invented the Arriflex in order to follow the armies quickly."
"This is why you have a light camera."
