The second part of Krzysztof Kieślowski's classic, award-winning trilogy on France’s national motto: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. Three Colours: Blue and Three Colours: Red will also be screening at QFT, all in remastered 4K.

Living in Paris, Polish hairdresser Karol (Zbigniew Zamachowski) is down on his luck: impotent, penniless, and divorced from his glamorous wife Dominique (Julie Delpy). When a compatriot offers an unusual job and a means of returning home, Karol receives a rude introduction to the new Poland, where everything can be bought and sold. There he begins to swim with the tide, determined to become ‘more equal’ than others and starts to plots his own form of revenge.

A tale of fortune reversed for which Kieślowski won Berlin’s Best Director award, Three Colours: White is a very funny and ironic black comedy that explores topics ranging from equality in sexual relationships to the ethics of post-communist Poland.

See Three Colours: Blue from Friday 26 May and Three Colours: Red from Friday 9 June.
