Majki Milco Mancevski Cel Film

the point of the film is that the father is an artist. i think it is very important for any artist to keep in mind that they are participating in an art, and should be aware of what art means. and that being an artist means you are a participant in a different world than the one that you are living in. you are living in a world that is about rational and logical things. art is not about that, and it is not about being normal. it is about something else entirely. you may choose to not participate in the world of the artist. but you can not claim that the world of the artist is not real or valid or useful, because it is. thats the thing that is great about this film. its about something that is a little obscure, and it can be hard to talk about. but it is something that is important.

“seba” was a character that was created to not only create a character, but to create a world. he was able to create an entirely new universe. its not like he could go into a film and say, “i want to depict this scene.” it was important for him to create a world, and then to create this character within that world. i think he did that very well. i have a lot of respect for him. there are times when i feel disappointed in what i see on television, but i think my father was able to do things that were very valuable. and i think that is what makes him such a great artist.”

the film is about a father and his son. its about a world that the father creates. its about a lot of things that are not really important, that are not really a part of the story, but they are the things that make the film. and the story is about a father and a son, and it is a film about being a man. it is about being a man, and about being a father, and about being a son.

a film like mothers is much more difficult to do than a straightforward film because it seems to have no resolution, even at the end. all of the events are left hanging, which for me is not in itself a problem, but it is a very difficult thing to grasp for an audience. as an audience, we are conditioned to get an answer. we want to see a conclusion. but this is not an ending, this is something else.
it takes a long time to finish a film. i think it takes about nine years, and sometimes it takes more than a decade. it takes a long time to get into a state where you can go out and see it. i have had the pleasure of screening some of this films for people here, and i will get a very strange expression on their faces, because they are not prepared for it. they are all like, ‘wow. this is really, really, really out of the box.’
i am more interested in the spiritual experience of watching a film, which is not to say that i am only interested in this, although i am. what i am interested in is the sensation that you experience when you watch a film.
film is so much richer than what we are used to seeing in our lives, thats the thing. when you have to put something out there, this is a very intense thing to do. when you have to keep something in your head for more than a few years, it is very hard.
