As I was going over the material I was buying, fiction films and documentaries, both
in Super 8 and in 16 mm, I began to select the images based on a single theme -actors
who were always facing backwards to the camera. Then I edited that footage without
the slightest narrative development. The only explanation I can give for my decision
to recount these specific moments is the unseen signifying power which resides in them,
their violent magnetism.
