Learning by Making with Abbas Kiarostami by Cameron Bruce Nelson
Kiarostami cree que nuestra fuerza viene de nuestras debilidades. Tenemos que conocer nuestras debilidades y superarlas constantemente. También debemos enriquecer nuestro lado fuerte para perfeccionarnos y crecer no sólo como cineastas, sino como seres humanos. Es decir, esto es aplicable no sólo a nuestra profesión sino en toda nuestra vida cotidiana.

Kiarostami believes when we think we are doing everything the best way, that is the worst time of our lives. We must understand that our power comes from our weaknesses. We must find our weaknesses and not be overcome by them. We must also enrich our forte to reach self-confidence, this is not related to filmmaking alone but it is true in everyday life.
