From the archive

This film was last shown on 13 October 2016

Anthropoid follows two soldiers from the Czechoslovakian army-in-exile, Josef Gabčík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan), who parachute into Prague to assassinate Heydrich and must deal with the challenge of pulling of the difficult mission with the city under lock down and limited resources and assistance.

Shot in some of the actual locations where the real events took place, Anthropoid is an extremely well made film that brings to light another incredible World War II story that most don’t know about. The film also stars Charlotte Le Bon, Anna Geislerová, Harry Lloyd Alena Mihulová, Marcin Dorociński, Bill Milner, Sam Keeley, Jiří Šimek, Mish Boyko, Václav Neužil, Andrej Polák and Toby Jones.
