[Camera Buff and White]
Camera Buff
(Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1979, Poland, 112 minutes)

White
(Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1994, France/Poland, 92 minutes)

A Chopin waltz is used to deepen the stakes of the ethical decisions of the protagonist in Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Camera Buff, one of the key films of the Polish Cinema of Moral Anxiety. Fifteen years later, in the black comedy White, Kieślowski parodied the use of Chopin music in earlier Polish films.
