By the 1990s, Warsaw-born Krzysztof Kieślowski's talent had earned global recognition, and his final four films were international co-productions that brought his vision to a much wider audience without artistic compromise. THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE earned three top awards at the Cannes Film Festival for its hypnotic look at two women (both played by Irène Jacob) who share a strange connection. But the director’s most famous achievement is his ambitious “Three Colors” trilogy - these meditations on liberty (BLUE), equality (WHITE) and fraternity (RED) served as a sublime coda to Kieślowski’s career.
A consummate Hollywood professional, Robert Wise earned Oscars for WEST SIDE STORY and THE SOUND OF MUSIC and later served as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ president.

From psychological horror (THE HAUNTING) to taut crime dramas (ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW) and science fiction (THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN), Wise made his mark on nearly every film genre. Join us for a centennial salute to the director.
