In Caracas a priest claimed to have witnessed a statue of the Virgin Mary weeping tears of blood. I set off for Venezuela with my camera to investigate. Many weeks later back in Glasgow, when my own film was almost finished, I found myself vulnerable in front of another camera. The flames extinguished, the smoke dispersing, a stranger’s camera filmed me in my home weeping black tears, my face covered in soot. I didn’t make this film. It just happened through misfortune, coincidence and a chain of philosophical reasoning.
