Kieslowski on the Net (Feb 2007 edition)

There are hundreds of Web pages on Krzysztof Kieslowski and his films. I can only read those in English or Chinese though. Occasionally I use an online translater to read pages in other languages.

A lot of Kieslowski Web pages in English have become inactive in recent years. However, the number of Kiwslowski Web pages in Chinese is still rising.

A few good starting points:
Polish Culture profile
Rotten Tomatoes

Despite not being updated anymore, Krzysztof Kieslowski and His Films is still a resourceful site on Kieslowski.

Kieslowski Web Network has a collection of relevant links. However, most of the links are dead.

Kino Kieslowski has long been the most active K-site on the Net. Nevertheless, activity has dropped substantially since mid-2004. The chat page has just died.

Some other Kieslowski sites:
Krzysztof Kieslowski (Doug Cummings, Senses of Cinema)
A Tribute to Krzysztof Kieslowski (Jae-Yeon Jung)
Krzysztof Kieslowski (Sharon Ben-Arie)
Krzysztof Kieslowski (Musicolog)
A Short Website About Kieslowski
Krzysztof Kieslowski (Channel 4 Film)
Krzysztof Kieslowski (Acquarello, Strictly Film School)
Kino Kieslowski - The Life and Films of Krzysztof Kieslowski's Journal
Veronika's World (Alexandre Fabbri)

You must go to Remembering Krzysztof, by Piotr Jaxa for his photos of Kieslowski. (For more, go to Kieslowski Gallery)

Although not a Kieslowski site per se, Zbigniew Preisner is worth visiting for Kieslowski-related material.

IrenKa, the Double Glance is in French and awkward to navigate, but it has a wealth of up-to-date information on Kieslowski (and Irene Jacob, and The Double Life of Veronique).
