Hungarian filmmaker Bela Tarr was of opinion that films should not be taught by certain rules and regulations. If he had power, he would have shut down all the film schools. He also added that editing should happen in cameras while shooting. He was speaking at the Aravindan Memorial Lecture which was conducted as part of IFFK. National Award winning Film Critic C S Venkiteswaran was the moderator for the lecture.

He also added that scripts are separate language from cinema. It’s just paper that gets wasted during filming. Cinema is the director’s art and one can recognize its director just by seeing a frame.

The book titled Kaalathinte Irul Bhoopadangal written by CS Venkiteswaran was released by minister P. Rajeev by handing it over to Bela Tarr. Kerala State Chalachitra Academy Chairman Ranjith, Secretary C. Ajoy, Artistic director Deepika Suseelan and C S Venkiteswaran attended the function.
