Czech WWII drama and romance at library Thursday, February 16

Posted on: February 12, 2012

Hana is an actress in Prague who finds her film career taking off. Meanwhile her husband Emil stays in the background.  But it is 1938 and soon the Nazis march into Czechoslovakia.  There is one more item of importance: Hana is Jewish.

The Murphy Library is showing “Protektor”, a Film Movement selection from the Czech Republic on Thursday, February 16 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. It will be shown in Czech with subtitles in English.  Not suitable for children. 

To protect himself and his wife, Emil collaborates with the Nazis when they take over his radio station.  Now Hana rarely leaves their apartment and Emil enjoys his time before the microphone.  Suddenly, a top German official, Deputy Protektor Heydrich is assassinated in Prague and everyone is a suspect, especially those who ride bicycles.
