    • BROTHERS is official Czech submission for the 96th Academy Awards
      Members of the Czech Film and Television Academy (CFTA) selected Brothers as the Czech entry for the Oscars. A fast-paced drama, directed by Tomáš Mašín, tells a real story about two brothers, who wanted to leave communist Czechoslovakia and join US Army in West Berlin in 1953. What ensued was one of the largest manhunts in modern history. The film will represent the Czech Republic as the official submission for the 96th Academy Awards in the category Best International Feature Film. The Czech Film Fund supported the film with altogether EUR 632 000.
