Words cannot express it (Peleshian)


Artavazd Peleshian : "But my films are precisely not about language, about verbal communications. The difficulty is that one cannot express with words what one finds in my films. If it were possible to say it with words, the films would be useless. Words cannot express it. One should not talk about films, one should watch them. This is why I have always been against interviews."
from Scott Macdonald's 1991 interview, in A Critical cinema 3, 1998
