White Light on Film: The Decalogue

Krzysztof Kieslowski, director

All screenings: Walter Reade Theater, 165 West 65th Street

Presented in association with the Film Society of Lincoln Center

There will be a White Light Conversation, The Evolution of Morality, on Saturday, October 25 from 3:45-5:15 PM in the Walter Reade Theater which will be moderated by John Schaefer.

The Decalogue, the acclaimed 10-part film series directed by Poland’s Krzysztof Kieslowski (known for his Three Colors trilogy), was inspired by the biblical Ten Commandments. This masterwork of modern cinema initially aired as a series on Polish television in 1989. While not widely known or released outside of Europe, The Decalogue is nonetheless revered by filmmakers such as Stanley Kubrick and critics like Roger Ebert. The complete cycle of 10 self-contained, hour-long “episodes” will be shown over the course of a weekend, making possible an immersive experience into Krzysztof Kieslowski’s enigmatic and poignantly human world.

To accompany the screening of The Decalogue, the Festival will present a White Light Conversation entitled The Evolution of Morality which will examine the role of morality in human evolution featuring noteworthy experts in human psychology, religion, neuroscience and anthropology. The discussion will take place on Saturday, October 25 from 3:45-5:15 PM in the Walter Reade Theater and it will be moderated by John Schaefer.
