"This is the first in a series of 'ghost films' — the idea being that the traumas of a land were reflected in the sky. I had recently arrived in Europe and could literally feel history all around me.

Also, around this time, I was obsessively drawing these particular landscapes from very far away and those figured into this film in some way."

"The second in a series of 'ghost films.' Part of this was shot in Greece. Most was shot from the window of an airplane, I believe traveling from Greece to France."
