When I attended the conference in L.A. where I met Zamir, he introduced me to a young lady who is an ethnic Pole, who grew up in Almaty. She has a scholarship to study acting at Santa Monica College, down the road from UCLA.
When the film Touch Line was screened about the crippled Chechen and Russian soccer players, she came up with the ultimate line about war. I am paraphrasing here, she said I always thought war was senseless, but this movie shows it on the screen. These were men, who fought each other and were now playing on the same team and had no animosity toward each other. They saw that as war and it was over.
Another beautiful nice intelligent person. It was an honor to meet her.
