Lukás Pribyl, Czech Republic, 2009, 90m
New York Premiere
Lukás Pribyl (Forgotten Transports: To Estonia, NYJFF 2009) returns with a moving documentary on Czech Jews deported by the Nazis to camps and ghettos in Eastern Poland’s Lublin region. Using meticulous research methods and declassified archival footage and photographs, Pribyl delves into the psyche of individuals on the run. Of the nearly 13,000 Czech and Moravian Jews deported to Poland, only 50 survived; several provide testimony for the first time.
Lukas Pribyl, Director, will be in attendance.

Marek Najbrt, Czech Republic, 2009, 98m
New York Premiere
Set in Nazi-occupied Prague in the late 1930s, Protector is a stylish drama focusing on the marriage of radio journalist Emil (Marek Daniel) and his Jewish wife Hana (Jana Plodková), a famous film star. Emil seizes a chance at career advancement, becoming the official mouthpiece of the Reich, in order to offer a measure of protection to Hana. Their fraying relationship reaches a crisis point after the assassination of SS Reichsprotektor Reinhard Heydrich by Czechoslovak paratroopers. Protector is the Czech Republic’s submission for the 2010 Foreign Language Oscar.
Marek Najbrt, Director, Benjamin Tucek, Co-Writer, and Milan Kuchynka, Producer, will be in attendance.
