UK Premiere of Lidice

The horrific razing of the small Czech village of Lidice was Nazi Germany's only officially recognised act of genocide during World War Two. This contemporary film by Petr Nikolaev tells Lidice’s story through its individual inhabitants. When František Šíma is imprisoned after a family dispute ends in the accidental death of his son, he unknowingly saves himself from the fate awaiting the village. A heartbreaking tale laced with tragic irony, Lidice asks whether surviving is truly winning when it comes at the cost of one's dignity and honour. Tickets available on 0871 902 5731.
