A director is like any other artist: a painter, a poet, a musician...I’d like to tell directors, especially young ones, that they should be morally responsible for what they do while making their films...Secondly, they should be prepared for the thought that cinema is a very difficult and serious art...You should belong to it, it shouldn’t belong to you. Cinema uses your life, not vice versa...[T]his is the most important: You should sacrifice yourself to the art. - Andrei Tarkovsky

Andrei Tarkovsky: A Filmmaker's Message to Inspire Creativity. "...the one element that keeps the artist centered…is the act of 'being true to oneself.' Immersing yourself in your art work with this sense of true self then leads to [this] important factor: 'You should sacrifice yourself to the art.' All great art reveals a balance between your unique vision and what the work necessitates."

As Russia became less tolerant of pro-Western behavior during the fifties, some popular Stilyaga activities became illegal and the subculture was forced to move more underground. A ban on jazz music meant that dance parties and jazz concerts had to be organized in secret, perhaps fittingly in a similar fashion to the American speakeasies of the 1920s.
