"Yet, making a film while rejecting narrative is agonizing. During our training, we were drilled to equate creation with narration or the representation of something. So just as I am trying to dismantle the story, I am forced to confront my conservative self that unconsciously narrates it. The weapon I take up in resistance is a fine blade, which I aim at the parts of myself that are still dormant. I have ended up battling the shackles with which I have bound myself."
