Dukla 61

MA15+ Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Dukla 61 at Dendy Newtown

Synopsis

An incomprehensible disaster that resonates to this very day.

 

David Ondrícek’s Dukla 61 is one of the most remarkable Czech television productions of recent times, focusing on the largest mining disaster of the  2nd half of the 20th century that occurred in the former Czechoslovakia.

Falling safety standards, the pressure to produce results as well as an avalanche of critical errors caused a fire on July 7, 1961, during which 108 men suffocated in a Dukla mineshaft near Ostrava. This catastrophic event and the circumstances leading up to it are told through the eyes of a man working at the mine along with his son.

Award-winning director Ondrícek has turned this half-forgotten tragedy into a compelling family drama which morphs into a thriller as we head towards a needless disaster.
