Milada tells the story of Milada Horáková, a heroine whose fight for democracy included surviving imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps only to be arrested (and later executed) by the Communist regime in 1950, falsely accused of plotting to overthrow the government. Famous figures such as Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, and Eleanor Roosevelt were inspired to come to her defense and brought her show trial to international attention. Shot at many authentic locations, including the courtroom where she stood trial, Mrnka’s historical drama explores the complex political landscapes of the post-war era. In English.
