My Nikifor


Krzysztof Krauze

2004, 1 h 42 min

The account of friendship between Marian Włosiński, a graduate from the
Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and a visual artist of the Spa Houses in
Krynica, and the disabled illiterate painter. Based on a true story from
the life of Epifan Drowniak, a genius primitivist painter known as
Nikifor Krynicki. On 15th April 1960, he entered Włosiński’s studio and said: I will paint here!
He just popped in but stayed for the rest of his life. The action of
the film depicts three months of 1960, two days of 1967 when a large
gallery of Nikofor’s works was open in Zachęta and one day of 1968 – the
day he died. It’s the film about the spiritual life of an artist who
creates most excellent works thanks to his spiritual freedom.
