Michał Marczak (b. 1982, Warsaw), Polish documentarist and cameraman, studied direction and multimedia creation at the California Institute of the Arts, photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań, and documentary direction at the Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing in Warsaw. In his feature debutAt the Edge of Russia (2010, KVIFF 46) he followed the path of a 19-year-old recruit who sets out for a border station not far from the Arctic Ocean. Marczak’s second film Fuck for Forest (2012) was ranked by Britain’s Dazed and Confused magazine among the 10 most innovative documentaries of recent years. Both movies successfully ran the festival circuit. With his third film All These Sleepless Nights the director reconfirms his reputation as a nonconformist who is ever veering from the parameters of the traditional documentary toward hybrid forms.
