Leeds International Film Festival have teamed up with Pictureville Cinema in Bradford to present the new 4k restoration by Curzon of the Three Colours Trilogya cinematic masterpiece created by the legendary Polish director Krzysztof Kieślowski.

The second film in the Three Colours trilogy: an ironic dark comedy about a man who plots revenge on his ex-wife after his life falls apart.

Karol, a Polish hairdresser, is divorced by his beautiful French wife Dominique and thrown onto the streets of Paris, penniless and with no passport. All seems lost until he meets a fellow Pole who ingeniously smuggles Karol back to Warsaw in a suitcase. Once there, Karol is determined to take revenge against his ex-wife. He deals successfully on the black market until he has enough money to put his plan into action; but he hasn’t counted on love getting in the way of its execution. 

Tonally lighter than the other Three Colours films, White is a witty, bittersweet anti-comedy which explores the revolutionary theme of equality as represented by its colour on the French flag.
