Anatoly Solonitsyn and Andrei Tarkovsky on the set of Andrei Rublev (1966)

The director’s task is to recreate life, it’s movement, it’s contradictions, it’s dynamic and conflicts. It is his duty to reveal every iota of the truth he has seen, even if not everyone finds that truth acceptable.

—Andrei Tarkovsky
