KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE
Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his unique humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.
The Double Life of Veronique (La Double vie de Veronique/Podwojne zycie Weroniki) (1991) -- 98 mins.
Kieslowski's international breakthrough remains one of his most well-known and beloved films. The Double Life of Veronique is an unforgettable symphony of emotion and a mysterious, metaphysical rumination on identity, love, and human intuition.
