Tributes - Retrospectives - Cinema on cinema
| 117 minutes | 1979
A watershed work for Kie?lowski, and certainly his most personal film. Camera Buff focuses on a worker who buys an 8mm movie camera to preserve memories of his young family. What starts as a hobby gradually becomes a consuming passion. As always, Kie?lowski took pains to faithfully capture the daily life of the time, and an underlying theme emerges as a result: a reflection on the saving graces of cinema and the artist’s influence on society at large. For anyone looking for an introduction to Kie?lowski, Camera Buff is an excellent place to start.
