‘I love editing and when I watched this film (Battleship Potemkin), it makes an impact on me. All the tensión, the editing, the rhythm so fast… when I saw it, I couldn’t believe that it was a film of 1925. So I have tried to unite all the emotions that made me feel, in five minutes. The most important to me is the rebellion at the boat, the Odessa staircase and the message of rebellion. Following this points, I changed a little bit the structure to strengthen this ideas, but the essence of the history is the same.’
