Num piscar de olhos

"We chop up the poor film in a miniature guillotine and then stick the dismembered pieces together like Dr. Frankenstein's monster. The difference (the miraculous difference) is that out of this apparent butchery our creation can sometimes gain not only a life but a soul as well. It is all the more amazing because the instantaneous displacement achievement by the cut is not anything that we experience in ordinary life."

Walter Murch, In the Blink of an Eye
