Czech director begins shooting film about Milada Horáková


Czech US-based director David Mrnka has started filming a feature film about Milada Horáková, a Czechoslovak democratic MP executed by the communists in 1950, who has become a symbol of resistance to Czechoslovakia's Communist regime. The main role will be played by Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer, who starred in Steven Spielberg's Munich. Czech actress Anna Geislerová will appear in the role of the infamous communist prosecutor Ludmila Brožová. The shooting of “Milada” will take place mainly in Prague and Terezín. The film will be shot in English and subsequently dubbed in Czech.
