Abstract:

Since his death in 1996, Krzysztof Kieslowski has remained the best-known contemporary Polish film-maker, and one of the most popular and respected European directors, internationally renowned for his ambitious Decalogue and Three Colors trilogy. In this new addition to the Directors' Cuts series, Marek Haltof provides a comprehensive study of Kieslowski's cinema, discussing industrial practices in Poland and stressing that the director did not fit the traditional image of a 'great' East-Central European auteur and that his films are also unique in the context of Polish.
