Remembering Borowczyk

Article's tools:

The Kino.Lab cinema in the Center for Contemporary Art at Warsaw's Ujazdowski Castle will show some 30 films by director Walerian Borowczyk for five days starting Jan. 22.

Borowczyk emigrated from Poland after World War II and made animated and experimental films in France between 1946 and 1988. He died in Paris in February 2006.

Borowczyk made his first animated and experimental films during his studies at Cracow's Fine Arts Academy, but international fame and recognition among the world's best animators came only after he started working with another Polish filmmaker Jan Lenica. Borowczyk was one of the first animators who showed that animated films are also art and thus are a suitable medium for more complicated scripts than just stories for children.

For many years under communism Borowczyk's work was not accessible to the general Polish public because he lived abroad.

The film showings at Kino.Lab will be accompanied by an exhibition of Borowczyk's graphics, drawings and animation props-over 60 items in all, borrowed from the Musee de Chateau in Annecy, France. This museum houses the biggest collection of Borowczyk memorabilia.

Date: Jan. 22-26 , Place: Kino.Lab, Center for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, 6 Ujazdowskie Ave., Tickets: zl.6-12, tel. 22 628 12 71-3 ext. 135

The exhibition runs from Jan. 20 until March 31.
