Arrow Video and Terry Gilliam Aim To Restore the Films of Borowczyk

Arrow and Gilliam Restore Walerian Borowczyk

Arrow Video, the British distributor of classic horror and cult films on both DVD and Blu-Ray, has announced a soon-to-be released Blu-Ray boxset of films by Polish director Walerian Borowczyk. The set will be made up of seven of Borowczyk’s works including 1974’s Contes immoraux (Immortal Tales) and 1975’s La Bête (The Beast). Borowczyk’s work helped solidify animation as a legitimate art form in the 60s and 70s. Most of Borowczyk’s early work had been unavailable for years until just recently when Daniel Bird, producer of Arrow’s boxset was able to secure permission from Ligia Borowczyk, to restore nine short and two feature-length films of her late husband’s.

This, however, is not the only news pertaining to Borowczyk’s work recently. Famed filmmaker Terry Gilliam has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to restore Borowczyk’s 1968 film Goto. Gilliam spoke about the Polish filmmaker’s work stating…

They activate a part of my brain that very few other things do…I haven’t seen any of these films in probably thirty or forty years, but they all have stuck with me. He needs to be restored and the world needs to be reminded.

No release date has been announced yet for Arrow’s Walerian Borowczyk collection, but take a look, and possibly even donate to, Terry Gilliam’s Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/380593722/restore-goto.
