Arrow Academy invites you to rediscover the amazing work of painter, sculptor and filmmaker Walerian Borowczyk (1923-2006) with the first major UK retrospective celebrating his prolific body of work, focusing on his artwork, short films, animations and live-action features, many of which have been rarely seen or previously unseen on video. To celebrate the release of five Borowczyk titles (The Beast, Blanche, Goto, Isle of Love, Immoral Tales and Short Films and Animation), we have a Blu-ray bundle to give away including a copy of each film. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Though the box set is now sold out, each of these films is available individually on Blu-ray and DVD for the first time from the 8 September, in a new digital high definition restoration supervised by leading expert James White and approved by the director’s widow, Ligia Borowczyk. In addition to exclusive documentaries featuring cast and crew, the full collection includes an hour long portrait of Borowczyk, featuring the director’s musings on painting, animation and sex. Daniel Bird, producer of the new restorations, said, “The process of researching and restoring these films has been decades in the making and a real labour of love for me. Thanks to Ligia Borowczyk, Arrow Films as well as everybody who took part in the Kickstarter campaign to restore ‘Goto, Isle of Love and the remaining French short films’, we are now finally in a position to rediscover Borowczyk’s work and re-evaluate his contribution to film history”.
