Remembering Krzysztof Kieslowski (1941-1996)

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.
