‘In the second Slovak film within the Czechoslovak Film Week, the genre shift into a biographical documentary is not random. The Power of Good – a story of “the British Schindler“ – pays tribute to Sir Nicholas Winton for rescuing 669 predominantly Jewish children during the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia by transporting them to Great Britain. This was done on his own initiative, while Sir Nicholas Winton had remained silent for 50 years afterwards. Joe Schlesinger, a Canadian television station reporter, CBS, who is also one of “Winton‘s children”, adds a great deal of testimony to the film.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the programme. The cinema is accessible through the reception of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in London, 26 Kensington Palace Gardens, London W8 4QY. Please note the entrance is on Bayswater Road. The film will be screened with English subtitles.’ (CC)
