A documentary film by HBO Europe on work of Walerian Borowczyk – a film director of unique sensitivity who was highly renowned in the 1960s and 70s, but later became pigeonholed mainly as a producer of erotic films. It is with the utmost pleasure that we come back, after many years and on the occasion of the anniversary of the great success of the animation “House” (“Dom”) by Jan Lenica and Walerian Borowczyk at EXPO 58 in Brussels, to a figure of the second ”founding father” of the Polish school of animation.
