A haunting, minimalist short that mostly consists of a monologue to camera by the young Rosalie, on trial for the murder of her new-born infant.

  • Director | Walerian BOROWCZYK

    Walerian Borowczyk is one of the most controversial names in the history of cinema. Inspiring the likes of novelist Angela Carter, filmmakers Terry Gilliam, the Quays brothers, and Jan Švankmajer, Borowczyk’s wild imagination and dark humor has been described as “when Kafka meets Bruñel.” Some call him a genius who crossed from painting, animation, to live-action; some call him a prurient, exploitative, obscene pornographer, like all those that sprung up with the 1970s relaxation of censorship.
