    Blood and Roses: Rollin and Borowczyk between Art and Exploitation

    4:00 pmLisbon, Portugal
    Jean Rollin and Walerian Borowczyk are two directors synonymous with European erotic cinema of the ‘70s. Straddling both art and exploitation, did the two filmmakers elevate the sex and horror films to something that has transgressed the conventions of both art-house cinema and genre filmmaking? Featuring illustrations and film ex- tracts, this discussion between Kier-La Janisse (publisher of a new collection of essays on Rollin) and Daniel Bird (author of a new book on Borowczyk) aims to compare and contrast Rollin and Borowczyk’s journey from the ‘60s art cinema to the ‘80s exploitation film. The books “Lost Girls: The Phantasmagorical Cinema of Jean Rollin” and “Boro: Walerian Borowczyk” will be available at the event.
