“TO ME CINEMA IS THE ART OF HAVING EACH THING IN ITS PLACE. IN THIS IT RESEMBLES ALL THE OTHER ARTS. LIKE THE ANECDOTE ABOUT JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH PLAYING FOR A STUDENT, THE STUDENT GUSHES WITH ADMIRATION, BUT BACH SAYS, “THERE’S NOTHING TO ADMIRE. YOU JUST HAVE TO HIT THE NOTE AT THE RIGHT TIME, AND THE ORGAN DOES THE REST.”

“MASTERPIECES ARE BORN OF THE ARTIST’S STRUGGLE TO EXPRESS HIS ETHICAL IDEALS. INDEED, HIS CONCEPTS AND HIS SENSIBILITIES ARE INFORMED BY THOSE IDEALS. IF HE LOVES LIFE, HAS AN OVERWHELMING NEED TO KNOW IT, CHANGE IT, TRY TO MAKE IT BETTER—IN SHORT, IF HE AIMS TO COOPERATE IN ENHANCING THE VALUE OF LIFE, THEN THERE IS NO DANGER IN THE FACT THAT THE PICTURE OF REALITY WILL HAVE PASSED THROUGH A FILTER OF HIS SUBJECTIVE CONCEPTS, THROUGH HIS STATES OF MIND. FOR HIS WORK WILL ALWAYS BE A SPIRITUAL ENDEAVOR WHICH ASPIRES TO MAKE MAN MORE PERFECT: AN IMAGE OF THE WORLD THAT CAPTIVATES US BY ITS HARMONY OF FEELING AND THOUGHT, ITS NOBILITY AND RESTRAINT.”

I’M NOT INTERESTED IN REALISM. ALL MY FILMS HINGE ON THE FANTASTIC. I’M NOT A DOCUMENTARIAN; A FILM IS FIRST AND FOREMOST A DREAM, AND IT’S ABSURD TO COPY LIFE IN AN ATTEMPT TO PRODUCE AN EXACT RE-CREATION OF IT. TRANSPOSITION IS MORE OR LESS A REFLEX WITH ME: I MOVE FROM REALISM TO FANTASY WITHOUT THE SPECTATOR EVER NOTICING.

“WE DIRECTORS HAVE A VERY LARGE RESPONSIBILITY. WE HAVE IT IN OUR HANDS TO LIFT THE FILM FROM INDUSTRY TO ART, AND, THEREFORE, WE MUST GO TO OUR WORK WITH SERIOUSNESS, WE MUST WANT SOMETHING, WE MUST DARE SOMETHING, AND WE MUST NOT JUMP OVER WHERE THE FENCE IS LOWEST. IF FILM AS AN ART IS NOT TO COME TO A STANDSTILL, WE MUST WORK TO CREATE A MARK OF STYLE, A MARK OF PERSONALITY IN THE FILM. ONLY FROM THIS CAN WE EXPECT RENEWAL.”

“THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR EQUIPMENT IS YOURSELF: YOUR MOBILE BODY, YOUR IMAGINATIVE MIND, AND YOUR FREEDOM TO USE BOTH. MAKE SURE YOU DO USE THEM.”

“WHEN WE EXPERIENCE A FILM, WE CONSCIOUSLY PRIME OURSELVES FOR ILLUSION. PUTTING ASIDE WILL AND INTELLECT, WE MAKE WAY FOR IT IN OUR IMAGINATION. THE SEQUENCE OF PICTURES PLAYS DIRECTLY ON OUR FEELINGS. MUSIC WORKS IN THE SAME FASHION; I WOULD SAY THAT THERE IS NO ART FORM THAT HAS SO MUCH IN COMMON WITH FILM AS MUSIC. BOTH AFFECT OUR EMOTIONS DIRECTLY, NOT VIA THE INTELLECT. AND FILM IS MAINLY RHYTHM; IT IS INHALATION AND EXHALATION IN CONTINUOUS SEQUENCE.”

DOVZHENKO TRIED TO TEACH US TO SEE THE WORLD. MOST OF ALL HE WARNED US AGAINST ACQUIRING ONLY THE TECHNICAL SKILLS OF THE CRAFT. HE DID NOT LIKE “FOLLOWERS” WHO JUST TRIED TO APE HIS APPROACH. HE URGED US TO BE FAITHFUL TO OURSELVES, TO TRUST OUR OWN FEELINGS AND TO STAND UP FOR OUR VIEWS. I DID NOT REALIZE AT THE TIME HOW DIFFICULT THIS IS. YOU COME TO UNDERSTAND SUCH THINGS AS YOU GROW OLDER…HE USED TO TELL US THAT WHEN STARTING ON A NEW FILM WE SHOULD KNOW WHAT NEW THINGS IT WOULD TELL THE AUDIENCES, AND WHETHER IT WOULD FOSTER THEIR BETTER HUMAN QUALITIES. I THINK THIS IS THE GOAL OF ART.
