".. a woman has strength to wait. ‘cause she’s had to wait. she has to wait 9 months of the concept of a child. time is built into her body in the sense of becomingness. and she sees everything in terms of it being in the stage of becoming. she raises a child knowing not what it is at any moment but seeing always the person that it will become. her whole life from her very beginning it’s built into her a sense of becoming. now in any time form, this is a very important sense. i think that my films, putting as much stress as they do, upon the constant metamorphosis. one image is always becoming another.”
