Andrzej Żuławski, one of Poland's most original and controversial directors, presents a loose adaptation of Witold Gombrowicz’s phenomenal prose – Cosmos. Awarded The Best Direction prize at the 2015 Locarno Film Festival, Cosmos is a metaphysical noir thriller that tells the story of two friends who spend time at the countryside guesthouse where they discover mysterious and frightening signs. Żuławski admitted that the greatest challenge of his newest picture was to capture the Witold Gombrowicz’s style.
Followed by a Q&A with literary critic Jean Pierre Salgas and film academic and expert on Andrzej Żuławski, Daniel Bird. The Q&A will be chaired by film critic, David Thompson.
