|Poland's great director would have been 71 on June 27, 2012|
Krzysztof Kieslowski has created some of the finest cinematic works that few people other than critics and cinephiles have seen. Though I've only seen 5 of his films, they are all beautiful, touching masterpieces. His passing was too soon, and I hope his audience will continue to grow. While he received two Oscar nominations for Three Colors: Red, he is not known outside rather limited circles. If you haven't seen one of his films, I highly recommend you do so.
Check out a lesson in cinema with him and some movie clips after the cut.
By the way, Tyler at Southern Vision wrote a wonderful piece on Kieslowski's work here.
