Born in Communist Poland, Marcin Malaszczak immigrated to West Berlin with his parents as a child.
Experiencing the relative nature of political systems and shifting between two completely different worlds and realities (East-West) have influenced his work predominantly. His films explore how human perception undergoes constant change in attempting to adopt to a changing environment. He uncovers the institutional powers of society, raising the question: to what extent can individual freedom be achieved. He studied Film Directing at the German Film and Television Academy (dffb).
His first feature length film SIENIAWKA will premiere at the 63rd Berlinale (Forum) in 2013.
Marcin currently lives and works in Berlin.
