Les États généraux du film documentaire 2012 Rescreenings Sen (Sleep)

Sen (Sleep)
Bogdan Dziworski
1986 - Pologne - Couleur - 8'

A subjective visual essay depicting the works and the imaginative world of famous polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński. Bogdan Dziworski adopts the recurring motifs of Zdzisław Beksiński’s paintings as lines of a surrealistic poem: an enormous eyeball, a grimacing old clown, tango dancers, a burning hearse, a corpse upon an operating table, a tomb and a cradle. Zdzisław Beksiński explained his idea of fantastic realism: "I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams": Sen comes from the same source of inspiration.
