(I think this is the correct spelling of his name. The Krzystof Kieslowski node should probably be deleted or merged into this one. I've /msg'ed hatless about it. )

Born in Warsaw, Poland 1941, died 1996. Very productive in early years in Poland, under the communist regime with its censorship. In those days it was a challenge among filmmakers to criticize the government using symbols, not being overly obvious. Moved his productions to France in the beginning of the '90s.
