Product Description:

Dozens of short art films from director Lech Majewski are assembled here into a single work. GLASS LIPS centers on a man's musings while he is in a mental institution.

Product Description:

A kaleidoscope of surreal, emotionally provocative, and powerfully resonant imagery; in Glass Lips, contemporary artist, Lech Majewski, explores a hidden human frontier where memory, madness, and imagination meet. Banished to an asylum, a traumatized young poet relives his tormented childhood in a cascade of wordless images and tableaux. Imprisoned in a lifelong bedlam presided over by an abusive father and a passively seductive mother, the poet uses his ebbing sanity as a means of escape. The parochial
cruelty the young poet endures and the transporting beauty he assays entwine into "pungent layers of narrative" (New York Times) that assault the unconscious and challenge preconceived notions of what is right and wrong, real and known. Acting as writer, director, composer, and photographer, Majewski contrasts the biblical with the baroque and the sublime with the profane to create "an aesthetic of dysfunction that's as beautiful as it is disturbing." (New York Times). Composed of thirty-three short films entitled Blood of a Poet, Glass Lips opened the 2006 Lech Majewski Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. A year later, the Venice Biennale presented it on multiple screens, prior to the theatrical release in the feature form offered here.
