Poland 1990 | 57 minutes | Polish | English, Hebrew subtitles
It has been 20 years since Krzysztof Kieślowski (1941-1996) passed away, but the Polish master's films continue to interest and astonish audiences. To mark the occasion, we will screen two outstanding episodes of Kieślowski's masterpiece series Decalogue (1988) presenting modern plots inspired by the Ten Commandments. In Decalogue V ("Thou Shalt Not Kill"), a young attorney has doubts about the justice system following the verdict on the murder of a taxi driver by a bored teenager. In Decalogue VI ("Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery"), a postal worker develops an obsession for his attractive neighbor. The two episodes, later expanded into award-winning feature films, were presented in last year’s Cannes Classics program.
