Krzysztof Kieślowski: a documentary biography 1
Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Curriculum Vitae, which was initially banned by the censors, is based on an idea by the writer Maciej Malicki as well as documents from the Regional Steering Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party. One member of this Party is threatened with expulsion and cross-examined. The character is interrogated about his personal life and religious marriage, heartlessly assessing his ‘ideological principles’. But in fact, they are trying to punish the activist for something else – his perseverance in ‘the case of several workers’.
