From the IndieWire Vault: The Polish arthouse director talks about his most famous series in wonderful, rich detail.

“Dekalog 4”

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s criminally underseen (yet still critically beloved) ten-part series of philosophical films, ”Dekalog,” has been receiving a lot of well-desreverd attention lately. It’s currently back in select theaters for the first time in fifteen years, got the enviable Criterion Collection treatment just this week and NBC is reportedly planning a remake. With all that in mind, we’ve dug up a classic interview with Kieślowski in which he describes his perception of the films and the different styles and genres that each of them possess.

With the current rediscovery of his series, he continues to garner posthumous appreciation (he passed away in 1996) as his films seem to resonate more and more with audiences with each passing year. We hope that this trend continues.
