Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski on UTV World Movies in October

MUMBAI: In its In-Focus category, UTV World Movies will feature Krzysztof Kieslowski for the entire month of October on Wednesdays at 8.30 pm. It will focus on the unmatched and impeccable works of the most influential Polish writer-director.

Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.

His film career began when he served as assistant director on Abbas

Kiarostami‘s Through the Olive Trees.

His last work, a trilogy, is regarded by many as the finest single collection of films ever made. Also made in both France and Poland, the trilogy was titled Trois Couleurs (Three Colors), each based on a different colour of the French flag and representing its social slogan evolving from the Revolution.

While Blue is the showcase piece for artistic direction, White is the starkly contrasting but highly articulate portrait and Red is the graceful and warmest of the three films. The films were scheduled to be released three months apart from each other while each could stand on its own; they were designed to be seen as a single entity.

The Decalogue (1988), a series of ten short films each nominally based on one of the Ten Commandments, was created for Polish television with funding from West Germany.

Said UTV World Movies programming head Manasi Sapre, "With his Three Colours and Decalogue series - Kieslowski is one of the best loved and most well-known of European directors in the world. His films, especially A Short Film About Love (which was remade in Hindi!!) and Three Colours Blue always top the favourite film lists of Indian media and film fans. Lyrical, controversial and a true master of his craft: Kieslowski is a director whose films have an unlimited potential of emotional and intellectual enlightenment every time you view them."
