In the order I was in, each brother takes five vows, one of which is teaching the poor gratuitously. As a young person I was seized by this idea of social justice and I wanted very much to follow my vow of teaching the poor gratuitously.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
It is very easy to make clear what you want a film to say, but I did not wish to engage in overt propaganda, even for the right cause. I wanted to create an experience through the films, something where people could have the freedom of their own response to them.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
It's not just the effect of technology on the environment, on religion, on the economic structure, on society, on politics, etc. It's that everything now exists in technology to the point where technology is the new and comprehensive host of nature of life.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
It's not that we use technology, we live technology.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
My job is to assemble this team of collaboration, hope that everyone has a strong ego but no vanity and that we can proceed with a critical path.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
Mystery is gone to the certainty of technological principles. So the real terror, the real aggression against life comes in the form of the pursuit of our technological happiness.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
Now having said that, I realize that releasing a film in the real world is like trying to get General Motors to release a handmade car.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
Remember that the film is about the digital domain. From the point of view of the scenario, images are evil demons, if I can be so bold.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
So the location for this film is the images themselves - what is traditionally called stock and archival images. Then we animated those images.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
So to hope to be able to have peace, to be able to have justice and environmental balance, are consequences of our behavior, not just our intentions.

So, not for lack of love of language, but because I feel our language is in an enormous state of humiliation, I decided to make films without words.

Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
Technology is not neutral.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
The language of the moment or, as it were, the language of the order in which we live, is the image. I felt that if I wanted to commune with the public, I should best do so through the language of image. It's a conscious embrace of a contradiction.
Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
The only thing I can do is type. I learned that when I was 13.

Quotation of Godfrey Reggio
What I'm trying to do is to at least raise a flag to the blinding light of technology.
