‚..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 Georges Bataille, 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.’
