1981, Janus Films, 123 min, Poland, Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski

Before he stunned the cinematic world with the epic series THE DECALOGUE and the THREE COLORS trilogy, the great Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski made his first work of metaphysical genius, this unforgettable drama about the difficulty of reconciling political ideals with personal happiness. The film follows Witek (the magnetic Bogusław Linda), a medical student with an uncertain future in communist Poland; Kieślowski dramatizes Witek’s journey as a series of different possibilities, suggesting that chance rules our lives as much as choice does. First suppressed and then censored by the Polish government, BLIND CHANCE is here presented in its complete original form.
