The question about the best films of all times is also question about you as a filmmaker. How do you define yourself through the films of others? So for one I chose three experimental films, three narrative features and four documentaries, and I wanted all of them to have a poetic quality and a strong visual, rhythmic and almost haptic tone. In those films, the art of cinema not compromised by simple storytelling, journalism or other alien approaches. Those films are true to the art of cinema.
