A look at the Central Station in Warsaw, the country's most famous building of the 1970s. There's the inevitable clash between delayed trains and chaos at the station, and the propaganda slogans glorifying the site.
I have one good characteristic: I'm a pessimist, so I always imagine the worst, always. To me, the future is a black hole. We have talked about fear, if I fear something it's the future. It frightens me.

This film (video) richly illustrates the life of the great Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski. It was completed just a couple of years before his untimely death. He comes off as a simple man, not at all like the great cinematic genius he was. The film, at 56 minutes, is just long enough to sustain our interest without becoming boring. Though interesting for Kieslowski fans, other film fans may not find this film to give much more insight on the director than what is already known.
