6 Sept.'20
- 20:30


At the moment this event is sold-out. A waiting list with registration will be created on the spot for people who were no longer able to book a ticket in advance.


Presented in the framework of the Brussels International Filmfestival.


Two men are about to embark on the last mission of their lives: to find and kill the former communist prosecutor who sent them to prison in the 1950s. Now the two former resistance fighters who used to battle a totalitarian society must battle their old age, their loved ones, and an era they no longer understand. At times poetic, at others absurdly humorous, with excellent performances of the lead actors, the directors’ cinematic look at the past provides a portrait of the stubbornness of age.  


Martin Dušek  studied TV journalism at Charles University in Prague, and documentary filmmaking at FAMU. His feature-length documentary debut A Town Called Hermitage (2007, co-dir. Ondřej Provazník) was named Best Czech Documentary at the Jihlava IDFF and was later shown at the IFF in Göteborg. 


Ondrej Provaznik studied journalism at the Faculty of Social Science at the Charles University in Prague, and screenwriting at the Film Academy in Prague. He currently works as a documentarist and screenwriter.
