Camerimage 2015

The images are terrible, these deaths are horrible. We must learn to live with danger. Remain standing, still believe in a free and creative society. Continue to have hope in and through cinema for future generations who will live without obscurantism.

Let’s go to the show, let’s have a drink, let’s see each other.
