August 9, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
An event every day that begins at 1:00 PM, repeating until August 10, 2019
Aug 9 & 10: Dukla 61
The Czech television production examines one of the country’s greatest mining tragedies. Failure to comply with safety protocol, the pressure to produce results, and an avalanche of critical errors caused a fire in a Dukla mineshaft in Haviřov on July 7, 1961, killing 108 miners. Shot in a former mine in Rakovník, this family drama pays tribute to the mining profession. Length: 150 minutes. In Czech with English subtitles.
