Przechowalnia

Directed by Marianna Korman

Przechowalnia (Repository) is a documentary about an extraordinary actor from Toruń, Niko Niakas.

It is directed by a young debutant, Marianna Korman.
The  inspiration for the film was her friendship with the actor. This feature documentary depicts the story of Niko Niakas, the only actor with Greek roots in Poland, who has been connected with the theatre scene in Toruń for 35 years. The documentary is an original presentation of Niakas’s life, which has been mostly guided by the whimsical Melpomene, a muse of Greek tragedy.
