"What’s interesting and subtle about Origami is that the model you see – as complex as it might be – is not the truth or the core of the object; it’s just one of many possible expressions of that piece of paper, just as being a dancer is of that woman.

When it comes to people, it’s harder to respect that boundary." Full interview.
The comedy series 5 dates was part of the official selection screenings at the festival.
