Description: Krzysztof Kieślowski’s mother photographed. In his Camera Buff, we find a moving praise of the film medium connected with the figure of a mother. After the death of his mother, one of the characters in the film, Piotr Krawczyk, asks his friends to show him a few seconds worth of footage with his mother in the window of their apartment. ‘It’s beautiful what you’re doing here, boys,’ he says, ‘the person is no more, but they’re still here’.
