Quote, Unquote : Laszlo Nemes


“People tend to see history as something that is frozen, as if it was remote from our world. But actually, it’s not too far away. We might end up in historical context really soon. I think it’s important also to communicate in a visceral way, not necessarily in an intellectual way, but in a visceral way with the plight of people throughout history and time. Something might remain with the people while watching this film, because it has to become very personal because it leaves room for the audience. I think the sense of empathy is something I’m really interested in promoting. It’s something that cinema can do but seldom does. I wanted this to be something that the audience feels under its skin.”
