“While there are more and more images everywhere around us, paradoxically, we perceive the increasing devaluation of this beautiful language every day. It is in this context that we are seeking to demonstrate, emphatically and convincingly, the importance of visual culture and the dignity of the image to the coming generation of filmmakers. Our aspiration is to educate mature filmmakers who think responsibly, with the spirit of humanism, artists who have an individual outlook, an individual form of expression and who use their creative powers in the defence of the dignity of man within the reality that surrounds us. Probing questions concerning our outlook on the world and the state of our civilization must impact the work of the new programme of doctoral studies in Sarajevo.” – Béla Tarr

“I read his statement and watched the first ten minutes of his film ‘Wreckmaster Harmony’. Enough to tell me that this is where I want to be.” – Ghazi Alqudcy

In the presentation, Ghazi will talk about his experience participating in Bela Tarr’s project ‘Film Factory’, including meeting Bela Tarr and other filmmakers such as Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Carlos Reygadas and Thierry Garrel, his feature-length omnibus and an idea for a new film project.
