Protektor, a new feature length film directed by Marek Najbrt, has recently been announced as the Czech Republic’s official submission for the foreign language Oscar.  Already critically acclaimed both in the Czech Republic and the United States, Protektor focuses on the complex relationships that arose during the Nazi occupation of the Czech Republic during WWII.  According to producer Pavel Strnad the two ideas they were most interested in working with from the outset were the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in Prague and the plight of a radio employee.  For more information check out these articles in  Reuters and Radio Praha.
