  • In the myth of the cinema, Oscar is the supreme prize.
  • My work is my only relationship to everything.
  • You exist only in what you do.
  • Georgian film is a strange phenomenon. It is special, philosophically bright, sophisticated and at the same time childishly pure and innocent. There is everything in it that can make me cry and I have to say that it is not easy to make me cry.

Don't tell me what I'm doing...Edit

The quote "Don't tell me what I'm doing. I don't want to know." is mentioned by Ray Bradbury within an interview with Ray published on the Bradbury website. It's in the "Articles by Ray Bradbury/Articles & Press" section: "People in Books: Creating Something Memorable" (interview by Mark Levy from "Bookselling this Week," February 1997).

"See, I live like Federico Fellini. He was a good friend, and he said -- and it's one of my favorite sayings -- 'Don't tell me what I'm doing; I don't want to know.' Get your work done. Then, after it's done, you find out what you did. But you can't know ahead of time. So, therefore, the unconscious act turns into creativity."
