I tried to create a visual experience, one that
bypasses verbalized pigeonholing and
directly penetrates the subconscious with an emotional and philosophical content...
I intended the film to be an intensely subjective experience that reaches the viewer
at an inner level of consciousness, just as music does...
You're free to speculate as you wish about the philosophical and allegorical meaning of the film.
