INVITE: “IN A GENTLE WAY, YOU CAN SHAKE THE WORLD” MAHATMA GANDHI ~ THE MAN OF MILLENNIUM

“In a Gentle Way You Can Shake the World” was deliberately chosen as a sub-title. It refers to his historical backdrop along with Gandhi’s belief in humanity at large, which applies even very much in present and future times to achieve global sustainable culture of peace in a “Gentle Way” yet “can shake the world” and change in a positive direction.  150 years have passed since his birth and 61 years since his assassination, yet world’s conditions, conflicts and wars are much harsher and tragic now than Gandhi’s lifetime or 20th century at large. Gandhi believed in inner peace, global peace and unity for all.

YAVUZ ÖZKAN: “BİLGİSİZLİK, İNSAN YAŞAMININ EN ZAHMETSİZ İŞİDİR”

SUNUŞ – 2 – ÖZET (2. ve son bölüm): Çok değerli sinema yönetmeni, senarist, oyun yazarı, düşünce insanı, oyuncu ve Z-1 Film Atölyesi‘yle birlikte birçok kültür ve meslek kurumunun da kurucusu ve eğitimci olan Yavuz Özkan (21 Temmuz 1942), maalesef aramızdan 22 Mayıs 2019 tarihinde ayrılarak, geride yeri doldurulamaz bir boşluk bırakmıştır.
Aşağıdaki söyleşi, Hürriyet-Gösteri Dergisi’nde Ekim 1995 sayısında yayınlanmıştır.
Bu söyleşi, Özkan’ın genel olarak o tarihe kadar yapmış olduğu filmlerinin genel bir çerçevesini çizmekle birlikte, artık edebiyete intikal etmiş olan Usta Yönetmen’in filmlerine ilişkin, kendi ifadesiyle geride bırakmış olduğu ve “Yavuz Özkan Film“lerini bilmeyen genç kuşak sinema öğrencileri, sinemaseverler ve genel izleyici ve de tüm merak edenler için, arşivlerden tarayarak* ve aradan tam 24 yıl sonra, online yayınlayarak her kesitten ilgilisine ulaştırmayı hedefledik.

Ya da 1995’te Z-1 FİLM ATÖLYESİ’nin KURULUŞ DÖNEMİNDEN BUGÜNE UZANAN BİR KAÇ ÇAĞRIŞIM…

“Şimdi varsınız, az sonra olmayabilirsiniz…”, bu söz, 22 Mayıs 2019 günü yeryüzünden göç ederek edebiyete intikal etmiş olan Usta Yönetmen Yavuz Özkan’a ait… Bu cümleyi kullanmış olduğu dönem, aynı zamanda, insanlık tarihinin yüz karası olan en karanlık tarihsel dönemlerden birine daha sonra yazı icinde değineceğiz. – Bircan Ünver, 8-10 Ağustos, 2019, New York

1995: YAVUZ ÖZKAN SİNEMASINDA YENİ DÖNEM

YAVUZ ÖZKAN’IN ANISINA Yeniden Yayın…

“Ne yana baksam, kendi kusmuğuna bulanmış insanlar görüyorum, kendini reddeden insanlar.. Sığlığın, cahilliğin, kabalığın, her şeyin kölesi olmuş, sözcüklerden, sevgiden ürküyorlar artık… Bu yüzden çekmeye karar verdim bu filmi…
Yönetmeni benim, senaryosu benim, görüntü yönetmeni benim, ışık şefi benim, sadece müzikler bana ait değil. Çaykovski’ye yazdırdım müziklerini… İlginç bir film olacak… Kendi ölümümü çekeceğim, evet, kendi ölümümün filmini çekeceğim…”
