Dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski

French with English subtitles

Krzysztof Kieślowski closes his Three Colours Trilogy in grand fashion, with an incandescent meditation on fate and chance, starring Irène Jacob as a sweet-souled yet sombre runway model in Geneva whose life dramatically intersects with that of a bitter retired judge, played by Jean-Louis Trintignant. Meanwhile, just down the street, a seemingly unrelated story of jealousy and betrayal unfolds. Red is an intimate look at forged connections and a splendid final statement from a remarkable fi lmmaker at the height of his powers.

Three Colours: Blue

Saturday 18 August

Tickets £9.00 / £4.00 concessions from Lewes Depot

Dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski
1993 | 98 min | 15
French with English subtitles

In the devastating first film of the Three Colours Trilogy, Juliette Binoche gives a tour de force performance as Julie, a woman reeling from the tragic death of her husband and young daughter. But Blue is more than just a blistering study of grief; it’s also a tale of liberation, as Julie attempts to free herself from the past while confronting truths about the life of her late husband, a composer. Shot in sapphire tones by Sławomir Idziak, and set to an extraordinary operatic score by Zbigniew Preisner, Blue is an overwhelming sensory experience.

Spinning the Colour Wheel: A Brief History of Colour

Saturday 18 August

FREE - drop in (please note that space is limited)

Our Art and Film strand is opened by Alexandra Loske, who will provide a brief illustrated talk on the history of colour: how humans have been creating pigments and paints since pre-historic times, the impact of Isaac Newton unravelling the rainbow, and how new ideas about our emotional responses to colour emerged in the Romantic Age. Alexandra will also talk about our special relationship with the colour blue to precede the screening of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s film Three Colours: Blue.

Alexandra will present a shorter introduction about the colour white before Three Colours: White (1994) at the Hillcrest Centre in Newhaven on 25 August.

Dr Alexandra Loske is an art historian, curator at the Royal Pavilion, editor of the book Languages of Colour (2012) and author of a major forthcoming book on colour, to be published in Spring 2019. She has lectured extensively on colour history and colour theory and has appeared on national and international TV and Radio.
