Alejandro G. Iñárritu: No man is self-made. That’s a fantasy. I didn’t study filmmaking. I studied the subsystem of filmmaking but I had very bad teachers. But I did have great mentors.

Alejandro G. Iñárritu" When I started directing I met Ludwik Margules, a talented Polish immigrant. I was lucky enough to study drama with him. Those three years changed my perception of what it meant to be a director.

Ludwik Margules: Poetry is a formidable kitchen for the stomach and the spirit.

Alejandro G. Iñárritu: Ludwik taught me to question myself, and to embrace uncertainty as part of the process. Ludwik taught me to bring out the best of myself. That’s what Ludwik taught.

Ludwik Margules: I learn from my pupils, I learn from my actors, and mainly I learn from life.

Alejandro G. Iñárritu: When I was 17 I had a different kind of mentor. Ernesto Bolio, my friend who doesn’t know about cinema, but knows a lot about life. I was facing a very difficult time in my life, a typical teenage existential crisis. So I got very close to him and he was someone who opened a world within me where I could see myself and see that I was not alone. I think cinema is made of life. Someone who teaches you about life is ultimately teaching you about your craft. Those who learn to see, learn to be. That’s the magic. The truth is, no one gets anywhere alone. That’s why I’d like to be there for someone. In the same way that someone was there for me.
