Short films by Krzysztof Kieślowski – Second programme
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Seven Women of Different Ages, dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski, Poland, 1978, 15 min.


From the late 1960s until the beginning of the 1980s, Krzysztof Kieślowski made more than 20 documentary shorts, touching on the vocations and lives of everyday people across the communist Polish People’s Republic, as well as occasionally documenting political events. By avoiding judgement of their subjects and eschewing the dogmatic tenets of socialist realism, each of these shorts presents a fascinating cross-section of Polish society.  

This programme consists of two shorts by the late Polish director:

Seven Women of Different Ages
Dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski, Poland, 1978, 15 min.
A poetic observation of seven ballerinas of varying ages across the seven days of the week.

Talking Heads 
Dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski, Poland, 1980, 14 min.
44 interviewees – from a newborn baby to a 100-year-old woman – answer three existential questions posed by the director.
