“Hopkins taught to me admire film for the rigor of its inquiry. I remember combing the Homewood campus for something worth shooting. Beauty, it seemed, would yield itself to you only if you looked hard enough. And this was precisely what the camera encouraged. Through it I discovered things to which I had never paid attention before—that “sudden light,” for instance, “that transfigures a trivial thing, a weathervane, a windmill…the dust in the barn door.” For me, like for Walter Pater, film was a way of interrogating nature.” -Daniel Schwartz, 2010
