I wanted to make a film about « seeing » and « not seeing ». Blindness is not only for the blind. The « seeing world » is mostly dominated by surface desires, by greed, by hatred and by ignorance. The neglect of our inner self prevents us from discovering the real nature of our consciousness. Cactus is a film about two blind people who teach one another how to see. it was especially written with Isabelle Huppert in mind. Paul Cox
