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 Scar (Blizna), 1976 -- 112 mins.
Kieslowski's feature film debut tells the story of the shifting fortunes of a massive factory project in rural postwar Poland. The Scar is filled with the vivid characters, lucid imagery and the incisive but even-handed social criticism that would define his early films.
