The mind is a story-making and taking-in machine. The natural way in which people think is to storify their experiences. This is how you remember, you put the past into story form in order to make sense out of life and try to understand what your life has been like, to try to prepare for the future. The mind is constantly storifying its experience. That’s the way it works.
Consequently, by telling a story as a filmmaker, you’re inserting, like a Trojan horse, a story into a mind that loves stories.
