KRZYSZTOF KIEŚLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Three Colors: Blue 
(Trois couleurs: Bleu/Trzy kolory:  Niebieski)
 (1993) -- 94 mins.

In the devastating first film of Kieślowski’s Three Colors trilogy, a woman reels from the tragic death of her husband and young daughter. More than just a blistering study of sorrow and grief, Blue is also a tale of liberation and a transcendent sensory experience.

KRZYSZTOF KIEŚLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Three Colors: White 
Trois couleurs: Blanc/Trzy kolory: Biały) (1994) -- 87 mins.

The most playful and also the grittiest of Kieślowski’s Three Colors films, White manages to be both a ticklish dark comedy about the economic inequalities of Eastern and Western Europe and a sublime reverie about twisted and irrepressible love.

KRZYSZTOF KIEŚLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Three Colors: Red
(Trois couleurs: Rouge/Trzy kolory: Czerwony) (1994) -- 99 mins.

Kieślowski closes his Three Colors trilogy in grand fashion, with an incandescent meditation on fate and chance. Red is an intimate look at forged connections and a splendid final statement from a remarkable filmmaker at the height of his powers.
