Transport from Paradise (Transport z ráje)
A film by Zbyněk Brynych
Czechoslovakia | 1962
Zbyněk Brynych’s award-winning film presents a vivid and realistic picture of the infamous Terezín Ghetto under Nazi control during World War II.
The Ghetto was an international marshaling community in Czechoslovakia where thousands of Jews from around Europe were held before being told they were being simply transferred to other towns – when they were in fact being sent to their deaths in the concentration camps.
Beneath the serene facade of everyday life in the Ghetto, the film slowly gathers a sense of the cold grip of terror in the Nazi’s purposeful, grotesque preparations for genocide.
Shot on location in Terezín and based on the personal experiences of author Arnošt Lustig, this haunting feature is presented for the first time ever in the UK.
