[on his documentary Talking Heads]
Documentaries deal with people who live real, everyday lives. But if these people trusted us and told us the truth about their lives, it could be used against them - which sometimes happened. The more invisible our tools were, the greater the danger we'd end up, with our cameras and microphones, somewhere we had no right to be, in places where everyone has a right to their privacy and solitude, their joy or pain - in complete peace.

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.
