Jakub Charon – born August 26, 1982. Polish author, screenwriter and
film director. Vocalist and guitarist of the band Pontif. Author of the
novel „Totem” on the basis of which he directed his feature debut.

„Totem” like the previous Charon movie – „Tension”, was realized on a low
budget, most of the scenes were improvised and played almost exclusively
by non-professional actors, presenting a high level of realism.
