BLIND CHANCE shows that chance controls our lives as much as so-called freedom of choice. We see how medical student Witek runs after a train. Starting from that event, Kieślowski depicts three possible twists in this student’s life. In the first version of Witek’s life story, he befriends a communist. In the second version he meets a member of the opposition. In the third scenario, he remains politically aloof.

BLIND CHANCE was completed in 1981 but banned by the Polish authorities. Six years after its completion, the film had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
