"Archaeologists have not yet discovered any stage of human existence without art. Even in the half-light before the dawn of humanity we received this gift from Hands we did not manage to discern. Nor have we managed to ask: Why was this gift given to us and what are we to do with it? And all those prophets who are predicting that art is disintegrating, that it has used up all its forms, that it is dying, are mistaken. We are the ones who shall die. And art will remain. The question is whether before we perish we shall understand all its aspects and all its ends."

"You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it."

Nail on head.
"I grew up in the era that was really a golden age of the blockbuster, when something being a family film didn’t have any pejorative connotations. It could be broad-based and very universal in its appeal. I feel like that’s something I want to see again, something I want to explore in the tone of this film. Something that really looks at where we are as people, where we might go and how the universe balances the human experience, and really try to not be a film, and try and be an experience people carry with them. And for me it’s about harkening back to the films I grew up with and took me to places I’d never imagined."
