«I was 7 or 8 back then, when a travelling movie theatre came into the tiny village where we had taken refuge during the war. A screen built with wood, was set up in the school gymnasium. Everyone rushed in, scrambling to get the best seats. Here I was, most intrigued by the projector at the back of the room, not minding at all where I would be seating. I remember very well remaining in awe, mesmerized by this machine which was eating the reel, image by image, while making these weird sounds. A world of phantasmagorical images, projected afar on this sheet, appearing then disappearing, as if a magician was somewhere pulling the strings. This world of lights seduced me forever. » Rintaro
