Those who truly love film cannot be bad people!
Those who truly love film would pursue Truth, wish for Goodness, long for Beauty, demand Independence, aspire to be different from others yet sharing with them the feelings of joy, anger, sadness and happiness, as well as the emotions for birth, aging, sickness and death. To grow and live life in the world of film is extremely busy, who would have time left for badness! No regret for this life, I wish for being a filmmaker again in the next.
I love those who love film.
