WARSAW: Jan Naszewski’s sales outlet New Europe Film Sales has signed a world sales deal for the documentary Love Express. The Disappearance of Walerian Borowczyk by Kuba Mikurda, which explores the career of the cult and controversial filmmaker Walerian Borowczyk.
Borowczyk began his career as a critically lauded art house filmmaker in the 1970s, who was later labelled as a maker of erotic movies.
“It is an original insight into the twists and turns of the sexual revolution and its aftermath and a chance to rediscover a forgotten artist, who influenced many great contemporary directors,” said New Europe Film Sales CEO, Jan Naszewski.
The documentary is a coproduction of HBO Europe, CoLab Pictures, Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Maagiline Masin and Otter Films, co-funded by the Polish Film Institute and the Estonian Film Institute.
