Page 11 - The eye lives and moves in time and space, perceiving and recording impressions in a way quite different from the human eye. It is not necessary for it to have a particular stance or to be limited in the number of moments to be observed per second. The movie camera is better. We cannot make our eyes better than they have been made, but the movie camera we can perfect forever.
Page 5 - Of course, Moana being a visual account of events in the daily life of a Polynesian youth and his family, has documentary value.
