Episode 98 - Krzysztof Kieslowski

The great Bill Ackerman is back once again for another wonderful conversation on one of my favorite directors, Krzysztof Kieślowski.  He had to endure a very difficult upbringing in his native country, but he eventually went to a renowned and highly acclaimed film school where he honed his craft alongside greats like Polanski.  We try to cover nearly everything but there was no way we could discuss each individual chapter of THE DECALOGUE, but we touch upon that as well as the majority of his films including CAMERA BUFF, BLIND CHANCE, and THREE COLORS as well.  Thank you so very much for listening!
