"There is no independent film, it doesn't exist, that's a myth," says Gunther Merkwurdigeliebe, in "In Spring" by Jamie Stuart. "Independent film exists in the home movie that you made of your last vacations on the beach in Hawaii...everything else is not independent, it does not not exist. We are dependent on finances and production and distribution systems and on the media, whatever. There is no such thing as independent movie."
