‘..for filmmaker Slawomir Milewski, the ultimate
transgression is not living life to the fullest;
refusing to embrace life and instead, travailing in
a grey, dull space void of joy.
Inspired by French intellectual and mystic, Polish
filmmaker Slawomir Milewski explores the issue
of transgression in his first feature length film
entitled Nostalgia For Existing Without Delay.
Born in 1979 in Poland, Milewski’s short films
have received awards from numerous festivals
and exhibitions in North and South America,
Europe and Australia.
Of his latest enterprise, the London-based artist
says: “In ‘Nostalgia for Existing Without Delay’ I
am combining a couple of themes: my fascination
about the role of transgression in societies
and what it means for individuals, and also the
theme of how human beings exist beyond the
realm of rationality”.
It all sounds very serious, but the director assures
us there’s plenty of humour, absurdity and sensuality
in this exploration, too – a bit like life itself.’
