By respecting and helping others every day; and
By thinking about how I can work with others to bring positive change in my home, neighborhood, workplace, community, and the world at large with help from the Early Childhood Peace Consortium https://ecdpeace.org/.”

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.
