Fifty years ago, Francois Truffaut wrote:
"The film of tomorrow appears to me as even more personal than an individual and autobiographical novel, like a confession or a diary. The young filmmakers will express themselves in the first person and will relate what has happened to them: it may be the story of their first love or their most recent; of their political awakening; the story of a trip, a sickness, their military service, their marriage, their last vacation, and it will be enjoyable because it will be true. The film of tomorrow will be an act of love."Cinema is all romance of the most heartbreaking variety. It's the love affair of the character and the audience, and the audience and the filmmaker, and the filmmaker and the film.
