The Many Sins of Walerian Borowczyk


A witty and eye-opening tour through Borowczyk’s own collection of vintage erotica. A Private Collection marks the turning-point between Borowczyk’s career as a highly-regarded animator and surrealist filmmaker, and his subsequent career in the sexploitation field.

Our take

Like any good animator, Borowczyk is a collector par excellence. It’s a quality that often playfully reveals itself in his films, and literally so in this gleeful, perverse hodgepodge of the erotic that in fact comments on the nature of sex. Commentary by surrealist André Pieyre de Mandiargues!
