About the Film:

Directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski. Poland. 1988. 583 min. Polish with English subtitles.

Get ready to binge watch on the big screen! Restored by Janus Films, this 10-hour Polish miniseries is hailed as a masterwork of morality. Each episode is a self-contained one-hour micro-movie that focuses on residents of a housing complex in 1980s Communist Poland, and is one of the 20th century’s greatest achievements in visual storytelling. 

Originally made for Polish television, Dekalog draws from the Ten Commandments for thematic inspiration and an overarching structure, and grapples deftly with complex moral and existential questions concerning life, death, love, hate, truth, and the passage of time. Shot by nine different cinematographers, with stirring music by Zbigniew Preisner and compelling performances from established and unknown actors alike, Dekalog arrestingly explores the unknowable forces that shape our lives. We show all 10 episodes, with a half-hour break every two hours.
