New Netflix Original film sees a powerhouse line up of writers including Nobel prize winner Olga Tokarczuk
The first Polish film to be commissioned as a new Netflix original is set to hit our screens this Autumn.
Entitled Erotica 2022, the production set in a surreal future where women are treated like products, sees a powerhouse line up of writers including Nobel prize winner Olga Tokarczuk and five directors including Olga Chajdas and Katarzyna Adamik, both of whom directed the Polish Netflix series 1983.
The film tells the individual stories of five women who suffer from loneliness and lack of real emotions in a world full of toxic relations, prohibitions and absurdities where their only duty is motherhood and sexual freedom is commonly stifled.
According to the creators, although the stories are fictional, ‘”Erotica 2022 shows a reality similar to ours, but much more oppressive against women.
“The events shown in the movie could happen today and that’s disturbing’’.
To portray the surreal future, the producers have turned to some favourites from the hit series 1983 including Agnieszka Żulewska, Sebastian Pawlak and Julian Świeżewski, as well as Agata Buzek (High Life), and model Małgorzata Bela.
In addition to Tokarczuk, the film will see writers Joanna Bator, Gaja Grzegowska, Grażyna Plebanek and Ilona Witkowska join forces along with directors Anna Jadowska, Jagoda Szelc, and Anna Kazejak.
The film comes on the heels of successes such as Cold War thriller 1983, The Woods adapted from a Harlan Coben book and the controversial erotic thriller 365 Days.
