Walerian Borowczyk

1963, 0 h 9 min

Borowczyk’s signature work, Renaissance features a wrecked, handmade objects
gradually reconstructing themselves into a still life composition before exploding
once more… Dedicated to Hy Hirsh (the American photographer, cameraman
and abstract filmmaker who died prematurely of a heart attack in 1961),
the objects (which include a doll, a stuffed owl, a trumpet etc.) in Renaissance
serve as a concentrated microcosm of a larger, off screen drama. A frequently
humorous and sometimes ominous sound track (not to mention a brief flash of
colour) make Renaissance one of Borowczyk’s most perfect films.
