-What is it that goes on in this particular postmodernist gas chamber?
-Nothing. It’s empty.
-So what is it that you’re guarding?
-You’re guarding space? That’s stupid, isn’t it, because someone could break in there and steal all the fucking space and you wouldn’t know it had gone, would you?
"And everybody thought when Nixon opened China, right? One of the…the time, you say, "look you know what’s gonna happen? If we could just sell every Chinese person a toothbrush? We’ll make billions! Why, there is just so many of them." And we never realized that they would be selling us the toothbrushes."
the men of fuzhou, china leave their wives and families to work as dishwashers, cooks, carpenters and day laborers in new york city’s chinatown. their little leisure time is spent in overcrowded dorm like apartments where they cook, eat, sleep and dream of prosperity and of home.
the women of fuzhou raise their children with the money absent fathers send back to china. such bifurcated lives mean that many families spend their time waiting for the men of the household to either send for them or return home. in the end, it’s all about the essential human need to hold hope in your hands and having the willingness to sacrifice your own happiness to realize the dream of giving children a better life.
Sen ne acayip belgesel karakterimizdin Charles! Dünyanın en ünlü karikatüristlerinden birinin belgeselinde bizzat bu karikatüristten rol çalmayı başardın. Üstelik adamın saniye başı yeni karikatür ürettiği dünyada sen sadece evde oturuyordun. Bir de insanın içini acıtan yalnızlığın var tabi :( Annene ve sana hayat boyu mutluluklar.
