"In La Chinoise, Godard makes the point about its being a movie by, among other devices, flashing the clapper board on the screen from time to time, and by briefly cutting to Raoul Coutard, the cameraman on this as on most of Godard’s films, seated behind his apparatus. But then one immediately imagines some underling holding another clapper while that scene was shot, and someone else who had to be there behind another camera to photograph Coutard. It’s impossible ever to penetrate behind the final veil and experience cinema unmediated by cinema.” — Susan Sontag

Some of Andy Warhol’s erotic male photography.
Sibylle Baier and her daughter Julia appeared briefly in Wim Wenders’ film Alice in den Städten. The two protagonists come across Sibylle standing on the ferry, holding her daughter as she sings one of her songs entitled ‘Softly’.
Also, this is the only video footage of Sibylle Baier that exists on the internet. Sigh.
Now I don’t know what to say. It was easier when I just imagined you.
