The influential Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski is famous primarily for his feature films, particularly the Three Colors and Dekalog series. But his documentary works are no less impressive, although they still remain much less known to the broader audience. On the occasion of the filmmaker’s 80th birthday, Docudays UA, in collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, the Polish Institute in Kyiv and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland, present a special retrospective, Krzysztof Kieślowski: a documentary biography, curated by the prominent Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Holland.

Agnieszka Holland and Anthelme Vidaud, the former programme director of the Odesa International Film Festival, will discuss Kieślowski’s documentary work, his moral choices in directing, and the reason why he moved away from documentary as a genre, as well as the curator’s approach to the retrospective.

The event is supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, the Polish Institute in Kyiv and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland.
