"It is a difficult film and it’s about a lot of difficult themes. But stop for a second and think about this: There is an entire generation of artists who never made their work. We’re talking about painters. We’re talking about designers. We’re talking about actors. We’re talking about filmmakers. Okay? My uncle was one of those people. And the reason why I think it is such an incredible thing to make this film and be in this context of emerging artistry is to think about that. What does it mean to be an emerging artist? What does it mean to try to get somewhere and then to be told ‘Not you.’ Not you. Not your friends. Not your community."
