Blaise Cendrars

A hundred worlds, a thousand movements, a million dramas simultaneously enter the range of the eye with which cinema has endowed man…Everything is rhythm, word, life. No more need to demonstrate. We are in communion. Focus the lens on the hand, the corner of the mouth, the ear, and drama emerges, expands on a background of luminous mystery. Already there is no need for dialogue, soon characters will be judged useless. At high speed the life of flowers is Shakespearean.
