Note / Together with Bregtje van der Haak, in New York Van Warmerdam interviewed Americans who had something to say about what ‘looking’ meant to them. One interviewee was able to think more clearly when he stared out the window of the train; another was afraid of looking someone straight in the eye. A number of these people were later asked to look out of a window for the film Frame.
