March 20, 17:00 – 19:00, Lögberg 101: The best of Kieslowski (plus screening of "Still Alive" - documentary film on Kieslowski)
Kieslowski's films focus on universal issues. They are experienced in a similar way by everyone no matter where they come from. Love, death, jealousy, sadness, despair, the choice between good and evil – these are all human problems, dilemmas and feelings. As a result, everyone is able to understand and identify with these films and their subject matter is universal.

After 26 years of political and economic transformation in Poland, after its deep identity crises and a period of foreign (mostly American) influences, polish cinema is rising and found itself to be a part of the new reality at last.
