Quotes

Krzysztof Kieslowski: [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.

A glimpse of the divine
20 April 2016 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

Krytsoff Kiselowski was a genius film-maker, a passionate opponent of the communism that gripped his native Poland in his formative years but oddly, perhaps the kind of intellectual who can only develop in an oppressive environment. 'Im So-So' is a documentary in which he offered his thoughts about some of his movies. For a man who inspired so many, he's a reflective but unassuming presence: there's a sense of highly restrained playfulness about his demeanour but also the sense of a man already old (and indeed, he sadly died soon afterwards, though only in his mid-fifties). If you obtain the DVD of my favourite Kieslowksi film, 'No End', there's a lengthy interview with his cameraman on that (and this) film which perhaps gives us more of a flavour of how he dealt with working under the system, and the way he impacted on those he worked with. The biography is still interesting in both accounts; but his art was divine.
