BAMPFA Screens Kieslowksi's Three Colors This Weekend

World cinema lovers have a rare opportunity this Saturday and Sunday to see Krzysztof Kieslowski's "Red," "White" and "Blue" trilogy.

Using the colors of the French flag, Kieslowski explores the themes equality, liberty and fraternity in France and his native Poland. Among the stars are Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy and Jean-Louis Trintignant, all delivering knockout performances.

Each film stands alone as a terrific experience and together they add up to a skeptical yet hopeful look at modern life and human relationships.

I saw the films when first released in the 1990s and welcome this opportunity to see them all over a weekend on the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive's big screen.
