BOGDAN DZIWORSKI AS A SPECIAL GUEST AT OPEN CITY DOCS LONDON

This year's special guest of Open City Docs in London is Bogdan Dziworski, who will present his films there. The retrospective will take place on September 8th.

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.
