"I think they all are forcing you to be silent. These films act like mirrors because when you are in the theater you become part of the subject. When you watch Primate about these monkeys––you become monkeys, you become scientists––it’s really like a mirror for the fear and shame of being human. “Do we treat animals like that?” All these things come up, and I think with the silence we allow ourselves to be open to that kind of empathy." —Apichatpong Weerasethakul
