Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema – A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING

A Short Film About Killing

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s epic miniseries The Decalogue—contemporary stories based on the Ten Commandments played out in a Warsaw apartment block—was a landmark innovation in late 1980s European television. A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING (from Decalogue V) tragically mixes the destinies of two odd and unsettling characters who wander the streets of Warsaw. The grim narrative is, in the end, an intelligent meditation on both the act of murder and the ordeal of capital punishment. (84 mins.)

A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING screens Wednesday, October 1 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of the Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
