Panopticon is a fictionalised documentary, presenting the history of Toruń, starting in 1901 and ending in 1989. The screenplay is based on five events of paramount importance to the city and their protagonists (victims or perpetrators) were prisoners of Remand Centre (the so-called “Okrąglak”). It is a unique building, based on the concept of the Panopticon — an ideal prison, designed by Jeremy Bentham, an English philosopher, in 1787.
