“I tried to show things that Argentina cinema wasn’t showing. If everything was explained too much, I chose to be less discursive; if there was a lot of talking, I chose to talk less; if it was clear that there was no narrative system, that every scene was filmed as it came, I tried to be rigorous and to tell the story in a specific way.”
[on the soundtrack from "Opera Jawa"] "This is the first film accompanied by an entirely gamelan soundtrack. The soundtrack of the film reflects how the medley of art, music and dance can work together to create something incredibly valuable like it does in Java. We live in an oral tradition, and if you come to Java you can see how song, dance and art all live together."
“I don't think about the audience, I don't think about what makes them happy, because there's no way for me to know. They think of the audience as a mass, but in fact every person in the audience is different. So entertainment for everyone doesn't exist.”
“The movies I like to make are very rich and full of passion. Some people see me as an action director, but action is not the only thing in my movies. I always like to show human nature - something deep inside the heart.”
