For our Classic Film Series this week we will be showing BLUE, the first film in Krzysztof Kieslowski’s trilogy. The following two (WHITE and RED) will be shown the following Wednesdays in May. Please be sure to join us for each!
The first chapter in Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski’s “Three Colors” trilogy, Blue stars Juliette Binoche as Julie, the lone survivor of an automobile crash that killed her husband, a famed composer, and their only child. Despondent, Julie attempts suicide, but she cannot bring herself to take her own life. Instead, she sets about starting over, purging all remnants of her former existence in an attempt to sever her ties to the past. A piece in the trio of films loosely inspired by the colors of the French flag and their corresponding symbolic qualities, the basic focus of Blue is liberty.
"Krzysztof Kieslowski's penetrating, hypnotic meditation on liberty and loss." -Hal Hinson
"Director Krzysztof Kieslowski's noted visual style is amply on display: images are transformed from the familiar into the unearthly, with a sense of dislocation permeating the whole." -TV Guide's Movie Guide
