A living document of the history, present and future of one of Greece’s most-loved underdogs.

The late filmmaker Nikos Triantafyllidis composes a cinematic love letter to his greatest passion, the Panthessalonikios Athlitikos Omilos Konstantinoupoliton Football Club, or as everyone else calls it, PAOK.

More than just a team, PAOK represents an ideal. From its amateur league beginnings, it was a club that gave refugees an escape from poverty and a place to play. Greek Constantinopolitans fleeing from war to Thessaloniki established the club and its colours: white for life and black for death.

90 Years of PAOK celebrates a milestone of football and culture, featuring interviews with players, coaches and members, and a sumptuous visual style that brings sepia and black & white photography to life.

Winner of the Greek Film Critics Association Award and the Hellenic Association of Film Critics Best Film Award at the Thessaloniki Film Festival 2016.


Ένας ύμνος για τη θρυλική ποδοσφαιρική ομάδα του ΠΑΟΚ Θεσσαλονίκης που έδωσε την ευκαιρία στους πρόσφυγες της Κωνσταντινούπολης να βρουν ένα νόημα στη ζωή τους.Το άσπρο στη φανέλα του, σύμβολο της ζωής, και το μαύρο, του θανάτου, έγινε ίνδαλμα για χιλιάδες.Ποδοσφαιριστές, προπονητές αλλά και απλοί οπαδοί σκιαγραφούν την ιστορία του θρυλικού αυτού σωματείου.
