Born On This Day — October 10, 1971

Carlos Reygadas

The ultimate respect for the audience is to say there are only individuals, with their own heart, their own soul, their own brain. So don’t make films as if you’re catering to some “market.” Let your own values be your guide in the film-making process. Then you can be authentic to yourself and respect others… I watch lots of movies, and I truly appreciate the directors that don’t try to lead me by the hand through their stories. I want to be considered one of them.
