Directed by Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa; In Darkness and episodes of iconic TV series; The Wire, The Killing and House of Cards), Burning Bush portrays the experiences of student protesters, the police and the media following the 1968 Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia. Drawing on personal experience, Holland convincingly interweaves lives, stories and conflicting interests in this superb, consuming and politically charged Drama. This special cinema screening is a rare opportunity to see the entire three part HBO Europe mini-series on the big screen in the comfort of the Eden Court Cinemas.

Part of the Made in Prague, The New Czech Cinema UK Tour 2015, organised in collaboration with Czech Centre London and Czech Film Center.
