3-Disc Limited Edition Blu-Ray Box Set
Second Run presents essential early works by Polish director and iconoclast Jerzy Skolimowski, one of international cinema’s most prolific and celebrated filmmakers.
This Limited Edition 3-disc Blu-ray Box Set contains a selection of 1960s feature films – Walkover (Walkower, 1965), Barrier (Bariera, 1966), and Dialogue 20 40 60 (Dialóg 20-40-60, 1968) – presented from stunning new 2K restorations, plus rarely seen early short films newly remastered in HD and released for the first time ever on Blu-ray.
“Skolimowski has produced a body of work located on the margins between the surreal and the absurd… His is a cinema of irony ambiguously played out […] located between reality and fantasy where the real shades into metaphor.” Great Directors: Skolimowski
