A SHORT SERIES ABOUT KRZYSZTOF KIEŚLOWSKI
Double Feature!
A SHORT FILM ABOUT LOVE / A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING
A SHORT FILM ABOUT LOVE
KRÓTKI FILM O MILOSCI
1988, Janus Films, 87 min, Poland, Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski

Teenage postal worker Tomek (Olaf Lubaszenko) routinely spies on his older neighbor Magda (Grażyna Szapołowska), a sexually liberated artist who lives in the apartment across the courtyard from his. As their private worlds merge, fascination turns to obsession, and the line between love and curiosity becomes violently blurred. This is the longer theatrical version of the sixth installment of Kieślowski’s DEKALOG, originally made for Polish television.


A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING
KRÓTKI FILM O ZABIJANIU
1988, Janus Films, 84 min, Poland, Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski

Jacek (Mirosław Baka), an angry drifter, murders a taxi driver, brutally and without motive. His case is assigned to Piotr (Krzysztof Globisz), an idealistic young lawyer who is morally opposed to the death penalty, and their interactions take on an emotional honesty that throws into stark relief for Piotr the injustice of killing of any kind. This is the longer theatrical version of the fifth installment of Kieślowski’s DEKALOG, originally made for Polish television.
