His movies are seldom more than a step from some flaming abyss, with his actors (and audience) trembling on the edge. Typically shot with a frenzied, often subjective moving camera in saturated colors that have the over-bright feel of a chemically induced hallucination, these can be hard to watch and harder to forget.

- J. Hoberman, The New York Times


Visceral and cerebral, tender and violent, with sensitive but extreme performances, they are marked by fascinating contradictions. [...] Mr. Zulawski's work addresses love, madness and troubled relationships, but his approach to storytelling and his cosmology of personal, political and biblical allusions are all his own.

- Kristin M. Jones, The Wall Street Journal


Following the success of Andrzej Zulawski's first US retrospective at BAMcinématek in New York and The Cinefamily in Los Angeles, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco will present all of his Polish feature films, including the epic sci-fi masterpiece On the Silver Globe, his surreal debut feature inspired by the story of his father in WWII Lwow, The Third Part of the Night (new 35 mm print), and his cult political-erotic tale of mad love collapsing along the Berlin Wall - Possession.


From a Whisper to a Screem: Discovering Andrzej Zulawski is presented by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in collaboration with the Polish Cultural Institute New York. Additional support comes from the Polish Film Institute and the Polish Film Archive in Warsaw.
