The Enigmatic Cinema of Krzysztof Kieslowski

Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Three Colours trilogy is a monumental work that blends cinema, philosophy and music in a seamless whole. Kieslowski started his career shooting documentaries and later became associated with the cinema of moral anxiety, which grouped several Polish directors, including ‘Andrzej Wajda’, and aimed to depict the conditions of Poles under communism. His best known work was the three colors series Red, White, and Blue. Red brought him an Academy Award nomination for best director in 1995, Blue shared the Golden Lion at Venice in 1993, and White earned Kieslowski the best director prize in Berlin, 1994.
