A message to young people from Andrei Tarkovsky

2021-11-21 #tarkovsky #youtube

I don’t know… I think I would only like to tell them to try to be able to live more in solitude, to love to be alone with oneself more often.

I think the problem with the young people today comes out of their effort to connect on the basis of “loud” actions, sometimes even aggressive ones.

This desire to seek connection to not feel alone is a very unpleasant kind of symptom, in my opinion.

I think human being should learn since childhood to be able to be alone. It does not mean to be lonely, it means being able not to be bored with oneself, because to me a human being who is bored with being alone is a human being who is in danger… from a moral point of view.
