But all my life I functioned pretty well in the system that made me compassionate for the misfortune of my rich friends, friends who I would have killed if they had shown even a gram of pity or paternalism. Which is to say that around my friends at high school I improvised the part of the “protector” of the most deprived, the ugliest, most crippled ducks. And since I was actually too weak to protect them myself, I played the role of the sympathetic one who wouldn’t exclude them. Still, I had a rather crazy conception of the relationship between the mental and the physical: I was friends with monsters because I was convinced there was no relationship between the personality, which was the only truth, and the body which was wholly false.
It’s now that, indirectly, my pride complains a bit. But I could have never done otherwise. I said of the cinema that I 51 had to be there, but in that strange balcony where, with a sort of disinterest, a child’s seriousness, we watch the result without fear, the rushing forward of images of the world the way it is, such that we don’t want to take its path: a place where there are no choir boys but only the rough laws of the social, money, treason, time, power, the rationality of the state of the studio, or of the artist, etc.

We had come full circle and we had truly lost. The proof? It was around this time that Faurissonian tracts started to circulate in France. * * * It took me twenty years to go from my ‘tracking shot in Kapo’ to this irreproachable Holocaust. I took my time. The “question” of the camps, of my prehistory, would still and forever be put to me, but no longer really through cinema.
