UK and Irish Premiere of ANTHROPOID

A pair of Czechoslovakian army-in-exile operatives must find a way to complete their dangerous mission: assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich. UK and Irish Premiere of Sean Ellis' highly anticipated drama based on an extraordinary true story will take place on 30th August at London's BFI South Bank.

On a dark night a pair of Czechoslovakian army-in-exile operatives (Slovak soldier Josef Gabcik, played by Cillian Murphy and with Jamie Dornan as his Czech colleague Jan Kubis) land in the woods of Bohemia. Their task: assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, one of the highest ranking Nazi officers of WWII and architect of the Holocaust. With limited intel and little equipment in a city under lock down, they must find a way to complete their dangerous mission. Director Sean Ellis (Cashback, Metro Manila) crafts an intelligent thriller, skilfully bringing to the big screen a little-known act of heroism.

Anthropoid, Dir Sean Ellis, Czech Republic-UK-France 2016, 121’
With Jamie Dornan, Cillian Murphy, Toby Jones, Harry Lloyd, Anna Geislerova and Charlotte Le Bon
