Eureka Entertainment to release ANDRZEJ ŻUŁAWSKI: THREE FILMS (The Third Part of the Night / The Devil / On the Silver Globe), three films from an uncompromising visionary and a true maverick of European cinema. Presented as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in their UK debuts on Blu-ray, all from stunning new 4K restorations. Available from 22 May 2023 in a Limited Edition 2-Disc Box Set (3000 copies only) featuring a Hardbound Slipcase and 60-page Collector’s Booklet.
An uncompromising visionary and a true maverick of European cinema, the Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present three films by Andrzej Żuławski, all making their UK debuts on Blu-ray from new 4K restorations.
Rich with multi-layered symbolism and apocalyptic imagery, The Third Part of the Night is Żuławski’s highly influential debut feature film. After his whole family is slaughtered during the Nazi-occupation of Poland, Michal (Leszek Teleszyński) decides to join the resistance but descends into madness after encountering a doppelgänger of his murdered wife.
The Devil is a violent tale of Satanic seduction during the Prussian invasion of Poland in the 17th century, which proved so controversial upon release that it was banned for 16 years.
And finally, On the Silver Globe, Żuławski’s masterpiece about a team of astronauts who land on a desolate planet and start a new society. When filming was 80% complete, the Polish government ordered the production to be shut down and all the negatives be destroyed. Miraculously, the original film reels were preserved and ten years later the film was presented at the Cannes Film Festival to great acclaim.
