Description: A young Kieślowski posing with a bicycle wheel resembles the helmsman from the famous propaganda poster for the Polish Communist Party. However, that poster was not made until 1968. Kieślowski makes a subtle allusion to it in a quick shot in his Blind Chance, when he shows the secretary of the communist party, Adam (Zbigniew Zapasiewicz), holding the helm of a yacht.
