Humanity begins the moment we stop being instinctively selfish and start seeing other points of view”

Akira Kurosawa ( and cited in Mark Cousin’s The Story of Film – a wonderful history of film).

Akira Kurosawa is the wonderful film maker of Roshomon and Seven Samurai, and many others.
Mark Cousins has written a beautiful and accessible history of film in The Story of Film (also a 15 part film .tv programme).
