“Yesterday I was watching The Marriage Story in The Flicks, an independent cinema in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. A ticket at this cinema costs four dollars and is valid all day; you can watch four films in a row if you feel like it. You have to take off your shoes at the door and there is a shelf of used books next to the bar.”

“It is a strange moment when an artist decides to stop doing art. What happens at such a moment? Nothing. The world does not come to a standstill. It is only he who stops quietly.”
