QUOTES FROM THE FILM

  • “Most of us do not even know how to ask a question. Most of us do not see the root of the word ‘question’ is ‘quest’. Most of us don’t have a quest in our life.” Richard Saul Wurman, TED founder
  • “I’ve found music over the course of my life is slightly more astoundingly inspiring than great cinema” Mark Romanek 
  • “I feel like we live in a culture where people are being content at just being good enough. To be a viable artist or musician or filmmaker, you really had to master your craft. To be a photographer, you had to understand your camera, your film, the developing process, the printing process – now you don’t need to know any of that.” Moby
  • “I’ve been going through screening exercises, I’ve been rolling on cylinders, and meditation is very good because somehow it makes you look your intellectual control.”  Johan Lindeberg
  • “What I’ve learned to do – and just started doing this past year – is painting on my lunch hour. I paint the actors in the film. This is just a way of generating more work from a single project” James Franco
  • “True creativity comes from restriction & limitation” Paul Schrader
  • “I’ve never written a note of music for money, because money is not inspiring. If anything, it gets in the way of things.” Hans Zimmer
  • “Creativity. All those creative people you are ruining my visual world. You are ruining my food. You are ruining everything I respect. All those schoold that promote creativity. I would like to ban all of you to some distant island. Why don’t you just paint, or make films, or sing, or play music. Forget creativity.” Jonas Mekas 
  • “I find it important to find these subversive people who have been driven away by the shame of social networking. This world where people who are living off of their phones and who are beating the shit out of human perception” Lola Montes Schnabel
  • “I think if it wasn't for my creativity, I would probably be dead now.” Tracey Emin
  •  “If I wasn't creative, I don't know how I would function. I don't know who I would be.” Karen Elson
