I would love to be jailed here - Samuel Shimon

'That afternoon I became captivated, as I walked between the shelves in the library, with books of literature, of cinema, music and art, dictionaries, even cookery book grabbing my attention. "I would love to be jailed here," I said to myself as I sat on the floor leafing through several books at a time about making films, writing scripts, about the lives and memoirs of actors, directors and film-makers.'
