"Everything that makes us what we are is threatened. That is war. It can enter us and ravage us. We aren’t immune to it. War doesn’t belong only to other people. I think by focusing on an alter ego, it’s easier to grasp the 'humanity' behind the 'inhumanity' of war." (Michel Coulombe interview, 2012; photo ellequebec)
