Commenting on his speach earlier this evening, Willem Jan Otten shows how his favourite films strive to reveal nothing . Films consist of images, but the truth does not. How does the indescribable become visible, how does the unreal become an image and still remain unbelievable. With the help of Steven Spielbergs Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade , The Japanese film maker Yasujiko Ozu, Robert Bresson and the film Smoke , the crucial question will be asked again: what does 'Thou shall not make images' mean. Does it make sense in these times to think about a state of 'imagelessness'?
