NAME OF FILM: CAMERA BUFF
DIRECTOR(S): Krzysztof Kieślowski
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: This year marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Krzysztof Kieślowski, the Polish cinema auteur (Dekalog, Three Colors) and one of the greatest directors in film history. Celebrate his legacy with this restored version of his career-defining early film, the Gold Hugo winner at the Festival in 1980, about an obsessive amateur filmmaker in Communist Poland who attracts the attention of Party officials. A critique of censorship, and a love letter to filmmaking itself.
The Chicago International Film Festival unveiled the full film selections in the World Cinema and Documentary (out of competition) categories, plus the additional guests of honor.
