Netflix has unveiled two upcoming doc projects: Struggle: The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski and Conversation with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

Struggle: The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski explores the life and work of Polish surrealist artist Stanislav Szukalski and is told through the experience of pop culture collector Glenn Bray’s discovery of Szukalski’s work and subsequent meeting in Tarzana.

The feature-length film features archival footage and dozens of interviews with Szukalski himself, as well as Bray, Robert Williams, Suzanne Williams and George DiCaprio.

It was directed by Irek Dobrowolski, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Roee Sharon Peled, George DiCaprio, Anna Dobrowolski and Ben Hecht, and narrated by Nick Tate.

Struggle will debut on the streaming site Dec 21.

Meanwhile, Conversation with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes (pictured) offers exclusive, never-before-heard interviews with the “Jack the Ripper of the United States.”

Ted Bundy was a serial killer and rapist, active during the 1970s. While the total number of Bundy’s victims is unknown, he was arrested in 1978 and confessed to slaying 30 women. He was eventually executed in 1989.

The series, directed by Joe Berlinger and produced by RadicalMedia and Third Eye Motion Picture Company, also explores how Bundy, who defied serial-killer stereotypes, gained both notoriety and admiration from American women, despite the severity of his crimes, and was a man whose good looks and social graces allowed him to hide in plain sight for years.

The Netflix original docuseries will premiere January 25.
