Terry Gilliam talks Walerian Borowczyk restoration

Kickstarter campaign to restore Walerian Borowczyk’s animations is fronted by Terry Gilliam

Terry Gilliam lends his support to a restoration project of pioneering animator Walerian Borowczyk’s films in this new clip, citing him as a major influence on his work with Monty Python.

The Zero Theorem director is stepping up to act as the face for the campaign, which is beginning its Kickstarter effort. Arrow Films and the documentary’s director Daniel Bird are currently restoring nine of Borowczyk’s short films and two of his feature-length movies, but additional funds are needed to restore his 1968 film Goto, l’île d’amour (Goto, Island Of Love).

The Walerian Borowczyk box set will be available on Blu-ray and DVD in spring 2014. You can buy Monty Python’s Flying Circus on DVD for £13.25 at Amazon.co.uk.
