“Our battle, our struggle—is to create Art.
Our weapon is the moving picture. Because
we have the moving picture, our paintings
will grow and recede, our poetry will be
shadows that lengthen and conceal, our
light will play across living faces that last
and agonize, and our music will linger and
finally overwhelm because it will have a
context as certain as the grave. We are
scientists engaged in the creation of
memory—but our memory will
neither blur nor fade."
—Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau
