Back then when Haake first arrived in Brownsville everything was totally new for him. No wonder he was never before that far away from home. Joe from the Filmcommission picked him up at the airport and brought him to their office to check our light equipment which came with an air freight. (This was the moment to find out if our lights would would work in the US as there is a different line voltage in Europe. If not we wouldn’t have had any light for shooting). In the evening we went to a Chinese restaurant as Haake was really sceptical regarding Mexican food. Well he got sick from the Chinese food then, that’s all I can say. What was hardest for him was the fact that you can’t smoke anywhere. Look how happy he, Barbara and Joe looked like when they were secretly smoking on the parking lot of the restaurant:
