My interest in film drove me to write my name on the contact list of “The New Anita/De Nieuwe Anita“, a film theatre/bar in Amsterdam. Ever since I have been receiving almost weekly information about the projected films in “Cinemanita“.
Funny thing is, like I said before, I have been receiving emails from “Cinemanita” for more than a year already and for some reason, once I began this research, I did not place an immediate relation. It seems like a never ending discovery of unusual connections.
So I went into my gmail to see an email from “Cinemanita” received at 10:05 in the morning today, a few minutes after I posted my last Anita, Color post.
The email begins like this:
SUNDAY DECEMBER 13
BLIND CHANCE (PRZYPADEK) 1987
Directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski
In Polish with English subtitles
Film Director Krzysztof Kieslowski is best known for his trilogy
“Three Colors” (©93/94), but before he headed for France he made some absolutely stunning films in his homeland of Poland. Of all the films he made, many consider ‘Blind Chance‘ to be the best… and some consider it the best of his career.
“Three Colors”!. Surprised? Actually not.
“De Nieuwe Anita” / “Cinemanita”.
