Tonino Guerra Talks Tarkovsky On The Late Filmmaker’s 80th

From filmmaker PJ Letofsky‘s work-in-progress, Tarkovsky: His God, His Devil: “On November 10, 2009 I had the privilege of interviewing Tonino Guerra in Pennabilli, Italy, for my new documentary. At the time he was already 90 years old, but sharp, remembering his friendship with the revered Russian auteur and their collaboration on Nostalghia. As this is one of the last interviews Tonino gave, I wanted to post it for his fans, honoring this great cinema poet by sharing his vitality and zest for life. The documentary, based on Tarkovsky’s diary, is slated for release in 2013.”

    Thanks so much for sharing this.
    I was in touch in Mr. Guerra in the same years for a project. I had planned to visit him in Pennabili, but it didn’t happen.

Which is easier, writing or directing a film?
Those are two totally different things. Writing is slightly easier because you can do it in bed.
~ Ben Wheatley To The BBC

You can neither make beautiful, great movies without risk as you can make babies without sex. Risk is part of the artistic process. That’s why I like performance, because performance is walking a high wire.
~ Francis Coppola
