Hannah Arendt: Human community breaks down when it loses touch with truth.

Hence the attempt to find truthful images and sounds and to string them together. Unadorned. Without embellishment. No ornamentation. Not illustrating anything. Not misusing filmed subjects for anything that is not in keeping with their appearance. Let them speak for themselves, in their own way. Making their qualities visible. Because only in this manner can the true colors of those who are exposed to them come to the fore and be approached.

The film must trust in itself, be confident about standing naked and allowing others to experience its nakedness.
