Gala screening: Protektor

Actress Hana has just become a film star and her radio journalist husband Emil watches her jealously. The war changes everything. For Hana, who is Jewish, it means the end of a glittering career and normal life. For Emil it is an opportunity to become the voice of German propaganda on Nazi-controlled radio. Events catch up with them when Emil steals a bike and the assassination of the Nazi governor Reinhard Heydrich takes place. The exciting retro style of the film evokes 30s cinema and the unusual focus on the role of the media provides a fresh approach to a story of fateful relationships set against the backdrop of war.
