The film Assassination (1964), the most awarded title from the extensive filmography of Jiří Sequens, takes the viewer back to the middle of one of the most difficult periods of the Czech nation, to the time of the Nazi occupation. With documentary precision and in a thrilling way, it tells about an act that has a significant place in the history of the Second World War: the assassination of the highest representative of Nazi power in the Czech lands, representing the Reich Protector SS Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich. It gives a broad picture of this event and tries to cover various contexts.

With this film screening, we want to commemorate several anniversaries and events of Czech history and culture - on the one hand, the 100th anniversary of the birth of the director Jiří Sequense in April, and also the 80th anniversary of Operation Anthropoid in May.

For the 80th anniversary of Operation Anthropoid, the National Film Archive also created and made available a collection of the LINDAT project called Heydrichiad. It consists of twenty-eight news shots which take the viewer through the period from September 27, 1941, when Heydrich assumed his post, capture the entire era of his work in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, and continue with the circumstances of his liquidation, which became the most significant manifestation of resistance in occupied Europe during the second world war.
