In times when values are in crisis, it is extremely important to be broadcasting clear signals about the reality we live in ― signals that would help us decide where to go from here. Cinema had always been pointing out good choices. The problem for film makers is to create true-to-life and emotionally stimulating visions of our world. The Wedding ― or rather our work with Wojtek Smarzowski ― made me realize for the umpteenth time that the role of film producer is to assist and serve. A moving work with significance for all may be created only when we respect what the artist has to say to us. I think we did well this time.
