Tarkovsky and death

The Sun Swirling

Another quote that has definitely impacted upon my filmmaking process, especially in production of the film Creation:

The allotted function of art is not, as is often assumed, to put across ideas, to propagate thoughts, to serve as an example. The aim of art is to prepare a person for death, to plow and harrow his soul, rendering it capable of turning to good – Andrei Tarkovsky
