Research Project

Zulawaski’s Transcendental Delirium

My project explores Andrzej Żuławski’s filmography. Through Zulawaski’s films, the paradoxical and ineffable nature of Christianity in relation to evil, sadism/masochism, femininity, desire, and love illuminates how modern western religion functions in conjunction with postmodern anxieties and the ever-shifting political and cultural landscape of Poland and France in 1970s-80s.
