Film screening: Masaryk

Just before World War II breaks out, Jan Masaryk serves as Czechoslovak Ambassador in London. He desperately tries to save his homeland from Nazi occupation, appealing to his French and British allies. Their betrayal is an ultimate slap in the face. Left without a nation, Jan flees to America, wanting to forget the world in a psychiatric ward. However, a German psychiatrist and a beautiful journalist encourage him to continue the fight to help his nation.

Based on the true story of Czech diplomat and politician Jan Masaryk, the son of Czechoslovakia’s founding father Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the film has been nominated for over 20 awards. It took home 12 of the prestigious Czech Lion Awards in such categories as Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Actor.
