    Krzysztof Kieslowski: I’m So-So...

    Krzysztof Kieslowski: läheb enam-vähem |

    Director: Krzysztof Wierzbicki

    Country: Denmark, Poland

    Year: 1998

    Length: 56'

    Introductions by Sławomira Borowska-Peterson.

    Less than a year before his death, Kieslowski agreed to be the subject of an hour-long documentary by his long-time assistant, Krzysztof Wierzbicki. The documentary offers a warm and humorous portrait of one of the most innovative and compelling film directors of modern days, an icon of Poland’s post-Solidarity cinema, who comes across as a gentle, modest, and intellectually curious man.

    Kieslowski’s documentaries:
    I Was A Soldier (1970, 16 min, in Polish with English subtitles)
    Curriculum Vitae (1975, 29 min, in Polish with English subtitles)
    From a Night Porter’s Point of View (1977, 15 min, in Polish with English subtitles)

    Kieslowski was initially mostly interested in documentary genre, in which he viewed the life of simple citizens, workers and soldiers. He has made 22 documentaries in total. “I Was a Soldier” is based on interviews with soldiers who have lost their will to live. “Curriculum Vitae” is about the persons of power, with whom Kieslowski was in conflict. “From a Night Porter’s Point of View” examines a man who gains satisfaction from following strict rules and harassing others.
