        Some thoughts from a colleague and friend who's not subscribed to
Screen-L but who has followed the Kieslowski's debate.

Concerning Kieslowski:
 
In the US: You can purchase The Double Life of Veronique either from
Facets (1-800-331 6197), or from a place in Florida called PolArt (I
think they have a 1-800 number).  The latter place has the largest
collection of Polish films in VHS (distributed legally!). They could
probably update you on what the story of the Decalogues distribution is.
I know that someone did purchase the rights to distribute it in the U.S.,
but for some reason it seems to never have reached the market.  For
formats other than VHS - the best place to contact should be Film Polski
in Warsaw, or the Polish embassy in Washington, D.C.
 
And just a little bit of moralizing. You should realize that whenever you
buy, or - even worse -show to others illegally distributed tapes, you may be
depriving the filmmaker of a portion of his/her income.
