"Our tale takes place during a severe winter, with frosts as keen as Christendom of the time. On such days it’s better to roost by the fire and remember tales of old, tales of foolish deeds scattered at random. Why even listen? Is there any sense in them? Why were they written? Tales told by chance, at random, for poetry’s sake, at the behest of a wandering echo, and because even the most ancient things lie in the web of present time…"   - Marketa Lazarová, dir. Frantisek Vlácil

Acting has always been a way for me to express the emotions I had buried. If I hadn’t acted, I would have gone insane. In my acting class, I could let out my real tears and everyone thought it was the character. But no, it was me. - Tony Leung Chiu-Wai

    ‘I don’t think about genre at all. My films are categorized as being in a certain type of genre. But myself, I don’t make the movie thinking about which category the film belongs in. If the actor changes, the mood of the film changes a lot too.’             - Takashi Miike

"Women are the n****rs of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me.
