Director: Peter BebjakSK, CZ, PL, DE | 2020 | 94 min. | fiction

This is the true story of Freddy and Walter – two young Slovak Jews, who were deported to Auschwitz in 1942. On 10 April 1944, after meticulous planning and with the help and the resilience of their inmates, they manage to escape. While the inmates they had left behind courageously stand their ground against the Nazi officers, the two men are driven on by the hope that their evidence could save lives. Emaciated and hurt, they make their way through the mountains back to Slovakia. With the help of chance encounters, they finally manage to cross the border and meet the resistance and The Red Cross. They compile a detailed report about the systematic genocide at the camp. However, with Nazi propaganda and international liaisons still in place, their account seems to be too harrowing to believe.

The Prague Orgy

Director: Irena Pavlásková
CZ, SK | 2019 | 112 min. | fiction

American writer Philip Roth based his book in part on his actual experience of the 1970s when he visited Prague after the Soviet occupation in 1968 to help banned Czechoslovak writers. Despite political oppression, social life in Prague was extremely exuberant, full of fun and open relationships. The greater the pressure imposed by the regime, the more the people enclosed themselves in their own private intimate worlds. Our story captures the journey of the well-known American writer Nathan Zuckerman to Prague in 1976.
