19:30 = 'Atentát' ("The Assassination"), directed by Jiří Sequens, 1964, 100 minutes, with English subtitles
 
Dramatic events tied to the assassination of Nazi Reichsprotektor Reinhard Heydrich inspired a remarkable film in 1964, brought to life by director Jiří Sequens. The most celebrated title in his extensive filmography, it depicts Operation Anthropoid, the biggest and most important mission carried out by the anti-fascist resistance under the Czechoslovak government in-exile of President Edvard Beneš.
