"The problem with films about terrorist group RAF is not the stories or the characters that we know; it is the pictures that we have to deal with. [...] The supposedly true, the historic pictures, are wrong, because they have become wrong through their endless repetition."

"John Ford has been quoted a thousand times: 'When the legend becomes fact, print the legend'. Here my goal was to let the 'truth' collide directly with the 'myths'. [...] I attempted to depict the myth of the Stammheim murders – of which no pictures exist – as if it were the truth. Because everything in this chapter of German history is a labyrinth of different layers of the supposed truth and of lies – and we carry them over and over again, on a staircase straight out of M.C. Escher, down the stairs and back up again." (Dominik Graf
