English Club announces fall film festival - Top
The Black Hills State University English Club proudly presents four films by the Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski in the 1999 BHSU Fall Film Festival.
The film schedule is:
"The brilliant Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski, who died of heart failure in March 1996 at the age of just 54, was far and away the most important filmmaker of the post-Iron Curtain era. As Eastern Europe swung to a radically different beat in the late '80s, he was there to represent the promises and insecurities of the new world order. . . . And his most recent works, "The Double Life of Veronique" and the "Blue," "White" and "Red" trilogy, which won Kieslowski his reputation in the United States, subtly contemplated the fate of Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
"Kieslowski's movies boasted stunning photography, exquisite music and the world's most gorgeous women. Amazingly, he utilized these most beautiful elements of filmmaking to explore postmodern malaise. Somehow, as contradictory as that sounds, he pulled it off, according to Michael Fox, Movie Magazine International.
The film festival is co-sponsored by the University Programming Team and partially funded by the student activity fee. Admission is free. For additional information about the film festival contact Vincent King at 6502.
