8.32. Walerian Borowczyk
Walerian Borowczyk (September 2, 1923 - February 3, 2006) was a Polish film director. He directed 40 films between 1946 and 1988.
Born in Kwilcz, near Poznań, he studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, then devoted himself to painting and lithography, including the creation of posters for the cinema, which earned him a national prize in 1953. In 1959, he settled in Paris.
His early films were surreal animations, some only a few seconds long, including several comic abecedaria. His most acclaimed early films were Był sobie raz (Time Upon a Once) (1957) and Dom (House) (1958, with Jan Lenica). In 1959, he worked with Chris Marker for Les Astronautes. Major works of this period include the stop motion film Renaissance (1963), which uses reverse motion to depict various destroyed objects (a prayer book, a stuffed toy, etc.) re-assembling themselves, only to be destroyed again when the last object (a bomb) is complete, and the nightmarish Jeux des anges (1964), selected by Terry Gilliam as one of the ten best animated films of all time. In 1967, he directed his first animated feature film, Théâtre de Monsieur & Madame Kabal: un film dessiné pour les adultes (Mr. and Mrs. Kabal's Theatre).
Borowczyk moved into live-action feature film with Goto, l'île d'amour (Goto, Isle of Love) (1968) and Blanche (1971), both tales of illicit love thwarted by jealous husbands, and both starring his own wife, Ligia Branice. One of his most appreciated films of this period, Dzieje grzechu (A Story of Sin) (1975), which was nominated for Palme d'or, is an adaptation of a Polish literary classic by Stefan Żeromski. Like his 1966 short film Rosalie (a Guy de Maupassant adaptation and a Silver Bear winner), Dzieje grzechu had successfully rendered the themes of seduction and infanticide. Contes immoraux (Immoral Tales) (1974) and his later work, including Interno di un convento (Behind Convent Walls) (1977) (inspired by Promenades dans Rome of Stendhal) and Cérémonie d'amour (Rites of Love) (1988) have been controversial, lauded by some for their unique surrealist vision and derided by others as contentless pornography. Especially, La Bête (The Beast, 1975)(based on the story Lokis by Prosper Mérimée and originally conceived in 1972 as a film on its own, but then in 1974 as the fifth story in Contes immoraux) was seen by many as a decline in the director's career after Dzieje grzechu, except in France, where it was hailed by prominent critics such as Ado Kyrou.
In 1981, he made Docteur Jekyll et les femmes (Blood of Dr Jekyll), a version of the Jekyll and Hyde story starring Udo Kier and Patrick Magee and depicting Jekyll's transformation as a violent rebellion against the Victorian morality. In his 1988 book Nightmare Movies, Kim Newman described the film as "dark, misanthropic and interestingly offensive". He made a brief return to animation with his 1984 short film Scherzo infernal. In 1987, he directed Emmanuelle 5, an installment of the Emmanuelle series, that was also released in a hardcore video-only version. He was unhappy with the project due to a dispute concerning the casting of lead actress Monique Gabrielle. In 1988 and 1990, he directed four episodes for the series Série rose: Les Chefs d’œuvre de la littérature érotique on M6.
Many of Borowczyk's films use historical settings, including Ars Amandi: l'arte di amare (The Art of Love) (1983), set in the time of Ovid (and featuring the poet as a character); Blanche, set during the Middle Ages; and three of the four episodes in Contes immoraux, set respectively in the nineteenth century, the sixteenth century, and the Borgia papacy.
A number of his films (like the "tale" La Marée (The Tide) in Contes immoraux, the 1976 La Marge (The Streetwalker), the episode Marceline in Les Héroïnes du mal: Margherita, Marceline, Marie (Immoral Women) (1979), and Cérémonie d'amour were based on stories by André Pieyre de Mandiargues. A less usual product of this cooperation was Une collection particulière of 1973, a representation of Borowczyk's collection of pornographic items, with Mandiargues having written (and read) the narration. His 1980 film Lulu was an onscreen adaptation of the play by Frank Wedekind.
Borowczyk was the author of two books; Anatomia diabła (Anatomy of Devil) (1992) and Moje polskie lata (My Polish Years) (2002).
He died of heart failure in Paris in 2006.
8.33. Jerzy Kucia
Kucia, born in Poland in 1942, studied painting and art design at Cracow’s Art Academy and has produced thirteen animation films since 1972, in which he was responsible for the script, direction and animation, always enjoying working with representatives of the experimental polish music scene. His films were screened and received awards at many international festivals (e.g. Cannes, Oberhausen).
His films are not only complex and ambiguous technically. As far as form is concerned, they move between a reduced narrative-graphic approach and partly expressive abstraction. Atmospherically his works, often characterised as "emotional", move between distanced observation, poetry and existential exasperation, as regards content one can detect state descriptions, as well as metaphorically formulated statements (about life in general, the political system, the human nature, etc.).
Apart from his role as "avant-gardist of animation film" who consistently developed a personal language of images against the usual trends of animation film festivals, Jerzy Kucia is an exceptionally important international ambassador and supporter of animation film. For many years he represented Poland in the international ASIFA (for several years as vice president) and facilitated communication across the boundaries long before the collapse of the old political systems
Since 1980 he has directed the Department of Animation Film at Cracow’s Art Academy, where he hands on his stubborn attitude.
Julian Antonisz, born Julian Józef Antoniszczak (November 8, 1941 - January 31, 1987), was a Polish avant-garde filmmaker, artist, animator, scriptwriter, composer, and inventor.
Best known as an inventor and promoter of his unique animation technique called non-camera. Sun: A Non-Camera Film 1977 (Słońce - film bez kamery) was his first all non-camera movie, although the technique has been used also in Antonisz's earlier productions. The idea after the tehnique was to paint or scratch the images directly onto the movie tape instead of using a camcorder. Usually one second of movie uses 24 frames. For example, his debut film Phobia 1967, lasts 11 minutes. 660 seconds times 24 frames gives us 15,840 images that had to be painted.
Antonisz famous of his mechanical skills, has constructed numerous accessories supporting the creation of non-camera movies. Antoniszograf fazujący was a machine which scratched a set of frames, with a fluid transition between the two following images. Another invention was a prototype of chropograf (could be translated as scabrographe), which created an image with distinctive levels of roughness, allowing the blind to recognize shapes presented on the picture.
His most awarded work is How a Sausage Dog Works 1971 (Jak działa jamniczek).
95. Jerzy Kalina
Action artist, performance artist, scenery designer, creator of animated films and stained glass. Born April 15, 1944, in Garwolin; resides in Komorow near Warsaw.
Kalina was a student in the Painting Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw between 1965 and 1971. He obtained his diploma in the studio of Stefan Gierowski. In 1989 he was invited by the same department of his alma mater to lead a "guest studio," which he lead for three semesters during 1990 and 1991.
Kalina's oeuvre encompasses a number of separate, varied activities to which the artist assigns his own names. These include "ritual actions," "determinants" and "living pictograms." The artist developed his individual language of forms early on, selecting and experimenting with the materials and objects that would eventually come to characterize his art, and delineating his sphere of interests. He has focused on issues of existential enslavement and limitation, which he strives to deconstruct through artistic processes that he uses to confront everyday realities in a direct manner (Skrepowanie / Discomfort, Victory Square, Warsaw, 1971; Przystanek taxi / Taxi Stop, Salt Square, Wroclaw, 1972; Wykop / Excavation, Wigilia / Christmas Eve, action art pieces at the Pawel Freisler Gallery, Warsaw, 1972; Bialy most / White Bridge, Wroclaw, 1974; Obchod / Inspection, Repassage Gallery, Warsaw, 1975; Przejscie / Crossing, corner of Mazowiecka and Swietokrzyska streets, Warsaw, 1977). While Poland was under Martial, Kalina adopted an unequivocally oppositional stance. Given his unrestrained, expansive tendencies as well as his links to the Catholic Church, his work had to generate social resonance of unheard of proportions in the realm of public art, which indeed it did. He produced works based on "official" commissions from Catholic Church authorities, e.g. visual elements and scenery for religious ceremonies (outdoor altars during the pilgrimages to Poland of Pope John Paul II in 1987 and 1991; visual design for the funeral of Father Jerzy Popieluszko (1984) and the design for the same priest's tomb located alongside St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Warsaw (1986), a monument shaped like a cross on the Vistula River dam in Wloclawek, 1991). He also created works based on government commissions, among them the design for the chapel in Belvedere Palace (1992). More recently he has been creating objects in sheet metal and designing stained glass windows.
Simultaneously, since 1973, Kalina has been creating animated films. He has authored more than a dozen films that have won him numerous awards at Polish and international festivals. He also designs and directs original theatre productions that are presented on some of the country's professional stages (Pielgrzymi i tulacze / Pilgrims and Exiles, premiered at the Teatr Studio / Studio Theatre in 1989, then performed numerous times in Poland and abroad; Katapulta / Catapult, Teatr Maly / Little Theatre, Warsaw, 1993).

Two years later he began working as an animator in a newly established animated cartoon co-operation "Slask", known today as Animated Cartoon Studio in Bielsko-Biala.
When delegated to Warsaw in 1956, Giersz established and trained a group of artists that was restructured into the current Miniature Film Studio after two years. There, the so-called Polish school of animation was born in the 1960s. In 1972 he started his studies in Film Directing Department at Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School in Lodz, and obtained a diploma in 1977. Between 1985 and 1992 Giersz worked for Animated Films TV Studio in Poznan as a director and an artistic executive.

7.87. Piotr Kamler
Born in 1936 in Warsaw, Piotr Kamler, graduate of the Academy of the Art schools of Warsaw, continue its studies in the Art schools of Paris in 1959. While arriving at Paris, it is put in contact with the Research center of the ORTF directed by Pierre Scheaffer where it collaborates with the concrete musicians like Xenakis, Bayle, Malec and where it carries out several court-measurings of research.
Since this date Piotr Kamler saw in Paris and in Warsaw but it is in France that it carries out its films.
As of its foundation, in 1960. the Research center of the O.R.T.F., directed and animated by Pierre Schaeffer, gives his support for the authors eager to join the study reports/ratios of the sound and image. This research was based mental is governed by an experimental step which continues, as from 1942, by successive stages: Studio of Test, Groups Concrete music and Centers Studies on the Radio-TV Between the basic research and the professional production, a common denominator: artistic creation. Already, the interdependence of traditional arts and the novel methods of communication attracts, quickly, of many painters and graphic designers. Some will improvise scenario writers in order to be initiated with electronic fakings, optics or, of cartoon film. Little by little, are worked out thus original, prototype works of a new language.
“The true researcher, by definition, does not recruit himself”, said Pierre Schaeffer, “it arrives”. Piotr Kamler was these.
Piotr Kamler carries out its films with the manner of a craftsman of the Middle Ages. Manufactured its own hands, its table of animation is a rest on which it works out slowly, by successive approaches, an object that it would like perfect. Design with the completion - drawing, taken sights, assembly - it is the work of a recluse.
Piotr Kamler is locked up in the world of the imaginary one. Or rather as he likes to repeat it, a real-world, whose he does nothing but visualize the existence. A world fantastic, populated odd characters and situations, a world baroque made of matters, colors and shades major; electric, complex and, often, contradictory world, which, of a logical relentless interns, points out ours curiously to us. Its fables, like “araignéléphant It”, “Delicious catastrophe” or “Heart of help”, S `endeavor to show that nothing is lost, that the improbable one can be possible…
To give a plastic reality to these strange stories, it is what worries, above all, Piotr Kamler: the search of processes and materials, the visual quality of the spectacle. Intense colors and lights mouvantest emphasize the presence of the characters and the decorations. The music is certainly the only field where Piotr Kamler agrees to establish the permanent bases of an artistic collaboration. The experimental music, the search for new sonorities, reveal an empirical step to him near to his.
In addition to the prices obtained in various international festivals Piotr Kamler was named Chevalier about Arts and Letters in 1975.
