There are films that never get old and are worth seeing on the big screen. Experience a gripping film drama that is one of the best that has been made in Czech cinema.

A film set in the tragic time of the Heydrichiad, still appreciated by audiences today. An acting concert by František Smolík, but also a story based on a real event, freely transformed by Jan Durda into a short story and directed by Jiří Krejčík. An indictment of Nazi malice, a probe into small-town morality and a tribute to the courage to express public dissent. Timeless, still relevant!

The screening as part of the celebration of the 80th anniversary of Operation Anthropoid in Prague 8 will be accompanied by an expert introduction provided by Libeňský svět - the centre of Libeň history and culture.
