Marek Haltof (English) recently published “Photographing People’s Feelings: The Patient Eye of Kieślowski and Karabasz” in Short Film Studies 5, no. 1 (2014): 27-31. This article focuses on Krzysztof Kieślowski’s short documentary Office (Urząd, 1966) and the mutual interest of Kieślowski and his mentor Kazimierz Karabasz in undistinguished characters captured “in depth rather than breadth.” Short Film Studies is a peer-reviewed journal, published by Intellect Press (UK), designed to stimulate ongoing research on individual short films.

Also, a new Blu-ray edition of Peter Weir’s classic Australian film, Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975), includes a booklet featuring an excerpt (10 pages) from Haltof’s 1996 book, Peter Weir: When Cultures Collide.
