Piotr Kamler

1936 | Warsaw Poland

Along with Walerian Borowczyk and Peter Földes, Polish auteur Piotr Kamler represented the new wave of animators from the 60’s and 70’s that followed in the footsteps of Alexeieff, Bartosch and Starewicz.

Born in Warsaw on June 30, 1936, Kamler studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. In 1959, he moved to Paris to continue his studies, and in 1960 began working in film, debuting with conte (story). This was the first of the approximately fifteen films that he produced, often with funding from the Service of Recherche of the ORTF.
