“Made during my daughter Maya’s early childhood, over a three year period, when she was first learning to talk and write. It’s not about her, but it’s a response to her questions about the world that implicitly challenge things we take for granted – the visual appearance of the world, ambiguities in language, the ways we communicate. It was my first film that involved gathering material around a central theme. That theme was not constant, but shifted its ground between ideas to do with childhood, with language, or with visual perception.” (G.S.)
