Quote of the Day (Mstylslav Chernov, on Ukraine’s Anguish, History, and the Responsibility of Filmmakers)

“I cannot change the history. I cannot change the past. But we, all together, you—some of the most talented people in the world—we can make sure that the history record is set straight and that the truth will prevail and the people of Mariupol and those who have given their lives will never be forgotten.”— Ukrainian filmmaker Mstylslav Chernov, accepting a Best Documentary Feature Oscar for 20 Days in Mariupol, quoted by Dan Heching, “Winners, Stars Tout Peace Over Politics at ThisYear’s Academy Awards,”, Mar. 11, 2024
