Synopsis

A fantasized portrayal of Polish auteur Walerian Borowczyk: Boro in the Box discovers a cruel and obscene world. He experiences banal yet colorful adventures, caressing erotic birds and organic cameras in a phantasmagorical Alphabet.

Our take

Bertrand Mandico (The Wild Boys) defied all expectations of the genre with his surreal and captivating biopic of the Polish filmmaker Walerian Borowczyk. A fictionalized account of Borowczyk’s life, Boro in the Box is an elliptical paean to his singularly provocative cinema.
