Quotes

Golda Schwartz: The very foundation of cinema is racist. What is a beautiful art form, combining the endless possibilities of its predecessors and an age-old dream of the audio-visual expression is based on an exclusivist and intolerant mentality, starting with D. W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation.
