‘Florence has a happy memory for me. It was 25 years ago when the most historic strike since WWII began in Britain. I made a documentary film about it that was banned from television because it showed several pictures of the police beating the mediators. The documentary film festival in Florence showed the film and gave it a prize. Because of the prize, the film had to be shown in Britain, and ever since that moment, I have had a "warm" feeling toward this city.'
