Artists Initiate Change
"There have always been people who have felt the necessity of change earlier than others. And this is critical for every society. Nothing is more important than human initiative and the freedom to create. . . To find and support such people is the great task of literature and art."
Rustam Ibrahimbeyov, screenwriter of "Burnt by the Sun," winner of the Academy Award Oscar for "Best Foreign Film" (1995) and "Grand Prix" at the Cannes Festival (1994).
