Alain Martin introduced Śladem Czerwonego (In the footsteps of Red), a visual presentation with spots about the choice of locations and the use of communication and crossings in Three Colours: Red (as in other Kieślowski’s feature films). One hour with commented pictures and planning, compared city today, and some frames of the film (FR+PL).
Agenda:
• topography and volumes, preparation by production and D.P., using the Technocrane;
• communication in Kieślowski’s work and Red;
• crosses, from the screenplay to the final scene of Red;
Red was definitively his “last film”: Kieślowski already knows…
Pascal Verdosci (assistant director, Switzerland) and Piotr Jaxa (photographer Three colors and cinematographer for several films of Kieślowski) were present. The event was held at Archiwum, the new location adjacent to the Sanatorium, which was held the same evening the opening of the photo exhibition Three colors photographs by Piotr Jaxa.
