Yesterday I was consumed by this strong unreasonable urge to make a movie. It happened after I saw Karwaan. The movie resonated with me at different levels but most of all travel and the ridiculousness of life itself. While the characters seem to be on a voyage to finding themselves there is nothing there to find really. One moment you are this and the next moment you are that. It’s just our view of ourselves and the understanding of the world that changes. They have a term in Zen for that. It’s called Satori.
So in this ridiculous universe is it mad for me to think that I should make a movie?
I remembered something :
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!
~ Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote
