What is cinema? (work in progress / 1)

To me, cinema isn’t saying about anything nor providing answers on any subject matter whatsoever. It is always about making a world for the audience, a cosmological universe if you like. Somewhere where they can exist, reflect, feel with their emotions, sense of their senses and even interact with their visceral faculties. Once this world is created, the maker departs from it. From now then, that planet orbits on its own will and have a life of itself. Only a haunting shadow of the filmmaker exists within its desolate landscapes. The audience will now inhabit and start to build from there if they wish to. This restless ancient soul travels in an unknown time and space without beginning or an end. Cinema is about making this enigmatic process.
