"[MESSAGES is] a diary-essay recording the development of language, in words and drawings, of his young daughter Maya. It is also a study of the world of trees, water and the passage of time. Intensely beautiful images of shadows of leaves falling on the open pages of a book, a voluminous tree moving in and out of focus, becoming a dark almost abstract mass, a hand plunging into a stream to pluck out a stone and so on. The film is silent with text superimposed - usually questions or comments by the young girl - which show the innocence and incisiveness of childhood. The film inextricably associates these with the perceptions of the artist. ... MESSAGES can be understood as a representation of the artistic process itself."
-- Michael O'Pray
