Moving Parts: The Short Films of Bogdan Dziworski (Various)

Location Regent Street Cinema, Director Bogdan Dziworski, Country Poland, Date Event has passed

This curated programme celebrates the work of maverick Polish filmmaker Bogdan Dziworski whose surrealist, mostly wordless studies of movement, bodies, competition and performance are amongst the most original works of communist era Polish non-fiction filmmaking. A professionally trained photographer and cinematographer—famous for his work with both Pawel Pawlikowski and Grzegorz Królikiewicz—Dziworski also has a background in the visual arts. The innovative, experimental hybrid works presented here meets thrillingly at the intersection of all three disciplines.
