Walerian Borowczyk

Joachim's Dictionary (Le dictionnaire de Joachim)

2de Internationaal Filmgebeuren Gent 9' - 1965 - Animated film - Format: 35mm
Director: Walerian Borowczyk Composer: Bernard Parmegiani
Based on a sparse, singular design by Laurence Demaria (Ligia Borowczyk), Joachim defines twenty six words each beginning with a different letter from the alphabet. As with, Grandma’s Encyclopaedia, Borowczyk offers a succession of visual definitions which suggest a doomed attempt at mastering the absurdities of the world. Frequently hilarious, Joachim’s Dictionary is Borowczyk at his most anarchic.
