The world according to Jørgen Leth

This week, Planete Doc Film Festival in Warszawa presents an impressive selection of Danish documentary films. Jørgen Leth's 'Erotic Man' will compete in two different categories, the Millenium Award and the Canon Cinematography Award, and Leth himself is in Warszawa for the festival to personally introduce the Polish premiere of his film. In addition, Leth and Polish actor Jan Nowicki will reunite on stage after more than 20 years. Nowicki starred in Leth's 'Notes on Love (1989), and they haven't seen each other since.
On the occasion of Leth's visit to Poland, the Polish company Against Gravity, represented by Artur Liebhart, will introduce their latest publication, a box set with 11 of Leth's most important films, presented in their prestigious series of box sets: 'The world according to...'. Only one other documentary filmmaker has been published in this series so far: the legendary Werner Herzog.
