Three Colours Trilogy

91 mins – France / Poland / Switzerland 1993 – Subtitles – Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski
Starring: Zbigniew Zamachowski, Julie Delpy and Janusz Gajos

Following Blue, White is the second instalment of Kieslowski’s Three Colours Trilogy of the French revolutionary ideals of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.

White stands for equality (and much else besides) in a droll tale of fortune reversed for which Kieslowski won Berlin’s Best Director award. Three Colours White begins in Paris where Polish hairdresser Karol is really down on his luck: impotent, penniless, divorced by his glamorous wife. A lugubrious compatriot offers an unusual job and a means of returning home and Karol receives a rude introduction to the new Poland, where everything can be bought and sold. He swims with the tide, determines to become ‘more equal’ than others and plots his own form of revenge.

Three Colours Trilogy

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s award-winning trilogy explores the French Revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and brotherhood, and their relevance to the contemporary world. It is a snapshot of European life at a time of reconstruction after the Cold War, reflected through the filmmaker’s moralist view of human nature and illuminated by each title’s palette colour.

Each of the Three Colours films, celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, will be screened over three weeks.

Thurs 8 June – 6.15pm – Three Colours Blue
Thurs 15 June – 6.15pm – Three Colours White
Thurs 22 June – 6.15pm – Three Colours Red
