Chloé Zhao’s 5 most popular quotes

  • A documentary film-maker can’t help but use poetry to tell the story. I bring truth to my fiction. These things go hand in hand.
  • What I love about America is not necessarily the American Dream but the fact that there’s so much spirit of fighting to continue to dream once the dreams are broken.
  • I often feel like an outsider wherever I go, so I’m always attracted to stories about identity and the meaning of home.
  • Coming from a country that’s rapidly changing, I love the idea of a place like South Dakota where nothing has really changed.
