When you answer all the questions, then the movie is finished and the audience is not going to think about it, because the problem has already been solved. I think what made human beings improve in life was always the question mark, and that’s quite holy.

when I was way younger my teacher brought up saddam hussein in class and I asked her who that is and she gave me such a shocked look and was like “out of everyone i would have thought that you would know” I was a child. A grown woman said that to a child.

"Before I went to the protest that day, I stood in front of a picture of the Dalai Lama, and I swore an oath: ‘If I am arrested, I will not give the names of any of my friends.’ They put me through eight months of interrogation. They burned cigarettes on my face. They made me stand in ice for four hours, until my skin froze into the ice, and then they pushed me forward. They gave me electric shocks on my tongue. They told me they were going to kill my father and mother. After eight months, I had a trial. Two guards stood next to me when I testified, and they hid electric shocks in my sleeves in case I said something they didn’t like. I was sentenced to four years. Sometimes I’d get so hungry I’d eat toothpaste. And sometimes I’d get so thirsty, I’d drink my urine. When I finally got out, I weighed 39 kilograms."
