Hesse in 1970. Interview with Cindy Nemser
"I had gotten to love Jean Godard and had just seen Weekend and I
was as moved as I could be by anything.
When I woke up from the operation, one of my second or third thoughts was film. I had never tried to make a film and I don't know why...
It is connected to my idea of the absurdity of life. I have so little content in my work in terms of reality. For me it is very much that - but it is not visible. It is abstractly that way. And in film, although I'm sure my film would be very abstract, there is some closer connection."
