Film tonight at Modern Art Oxford 

Polish director, Kieslowski first rose to prominence with Decalogue, a series of television commentaries on the Ten Commandments set within a suburb of Warsaw. A Short Film About Killing is an extended ve

rsion of one of these, and tells the story of a young man who kills a taxi driver and is executed for the crime. The film caused a sensation when released, and was influential in the abolition of the death penalty in Poland.
