UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles present

Dukla 61 (2018)
Directed by David Ondříček

This 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. The brave miners regarded their work as a mission, even though they risked their lives each and every day.

Director: David Ondříček. Screenwriter: Matej Podzimek, Jakub Rezny. Cast: Martha Issová, Marek Taclík, Oskar Hes

DCP, color, in Czech with English subtitles, 150 min.
