#1. I spent my childhood and youth on the outskirts of the Alps, in a region that was largely spared the immediate effects of the so-called hostilities. At the end of the war I was just one year old, so I can hardly have any impressions of that period of destruction based on personal experience. Yet to this day, when I see photographs or documentary films dating from the war I feel as if I were its child, so to speak, as if those horrors I did not experience cast a shadow over me ... I see pictures merging before my mind's eye - paths through the fields, river meadows, and mountain pastures mingling with images of destruction - and oddly enough, it is the latter, not the now entirely unreal idylls of my early childhood, that make me feel rather as if I were coming home ... - Author: W.G. Sebald
Documentary Films quotes by W.G. Sebald

Documentary Films quotes by Amy Ziering

Documentary Films quotes by Bruce Jackson
#9. electrical wires dragged down by the weight of the ice and flickering balefully, a row of sleet-covered planes stranded in an airport, a huge truck that's jackknifed and tipped over and is lying on its side with smoke coming out. An ambulance is on the scene, a fire truck, a huddle of raingear-clad operatives: someone's been injured, always a sight to make the heart beat faster. A policeman appears, crystals of ice whitening his moustache; he pleads sternly with people to stay inside. It's no joke, he tells the viewers. Don't think you can brave the elements! His frowning, frosted eyebrows are noble, like those on the wartime bond-drive posters from the 1940s. Constance remembers those, or believes she does. But she may just be remembering history books or museum displays or documentary films: so hard, sometimes, to tag those memories accurately. Finally, a minor touch of pathos: a stray dog is displayed, semi-frozen, wrapped in a child's pink nap blanket. A gelid baby - Author: Margaret Atwood

Documentary Films quotes by Steve James
#13. Making an independent documentary film is so hard that usually, the usual model is that your film becomes a model for advocacy, so you can enlist that support group and get as much juice out of your film as possible. That's just practically, financially, what you need to do. - Author: Tim Hetherington
Documentary Films quotes by Tim Hetherington

Documentary Films quotes by Tom Shales

#18. There is so much investment in it of people's labor time that it will never make money. But there are other documentaries that you might make that are sort of on assignment for television that turn around in three to six months.

So I think if you're doing documentary films, that's sort of the way to look at it. - Author: Liz Garbus
Documentary Films quotes by Liz Garbus

Documentary Films quotes by Salman Rushdie
#21. I like a lot of good European films, good - anything really. I'm a big fan of Netflix and I get films from them all the time. If I hear about something that I don't know, that I haven't seen, forgot about, I immediately jot it down and add it to my Netflix list or if there's a film that's available that I haven't seen for many years, I get that. - Author: Robert Barry
Documentary Films quotes by Robert Barry
#22. I'm sure that the book is incrediable, phenomenal and so on and so on going in positive direction... But the film wasn't made well (I'm talking about NeedFul Things by Stephen King), the effects weren't good, some scenes were missed, for example I'm very curiouis how does the guy kills his wife with the harmer... The scene reminds me for Shining, but Unfortunately in the Shining there were more possibilities to be saw this scene, than in this film... If some disadvantages will be fixed, then I'm sure that the film will be pretty interesting, however to don't forget about the quality! - Author: Deyth Banger
Documentary Films quotes by Deyth Banger

#27. There is such a weight of history behind this that it makes Valerio feel weak. He has never experienced anything of the sort, and neither has anyone he knows. For him, mass graves belong to the past, to book about the Spanish Civil War and films about the Fascist period. But not now, not in this life, not so close, not to Sheida; history is not supposed to come into one's home. - Author: Sahar Delijani
Documentary Films quotes by Sahar Delijani

Documentary Films quotes by Richard Corliss
#29. For me, in general, it's always about the material. Obviously, it's about the material and hoping that someone wants to hire me for a job, too, but I've certainly seen films like 'Orphan' and movies like that where I know that if I had had the opportunity to read that script or had an opportunity to do it, I would have wanted to do it. - Author: Jennifer Morrison
Documentary Films quotes by Jennifer Morrison
#30. Even though I was making documentaries, my films had fictional elements to them.

Documentary Films quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#31. If you look at films about becoming a man, coming-of-age movies are made with 12-, 16-, 40-, 50-year-olds ... For a guy to feel like he's a 100 percent grown-up is almost like giving up. Like admitting that you're on your way into the grave. - Author: Kevin Bacon
Documentary Films quotes by Kevin Bacon
#32.

These temporary employees would provide labor and other skills for around four months before being sent home. The - Author: Roman Collins

Documentary Films quotes by Amy Seimetz
#47. I prefer theater, but I love to do films, and I prefer theater primarily because I've done more. I know less about movies. You can't lie in either medium. The wonderful thing is that the camera, just like an audience, is made out of skin - because celluloid is skin. - Author: Amanda Plummer

Documentary Films quotes by Rusty Fischer
#54. I'm pretty happy with who I am. I like myself and what I'm doing. I don't need to be the world's greatest director or the most famous

Documentary Films quotes by John Carpenter
#55. I have friends who are leading men, and they're only ever allowed to play leading men of a certain type. But as a character actor, there's a wider variety of projects available.

Documentary Films quotes by Eddie Marsan
