PRAGUE: The Italian-Czech co-production Terezin by Gabriele Guidi, co-produced by Production of the Three Brothers, began filming in Prague on August 30, 2021. Production is supported by the Prague Film Fund.

The film produced by Minerva Pictures in Italy is set during WWII in the Czech fortress of Terezín, a ghetto and concentration camp where Jewish artists managed to communicate and even create. We will follow an intimate love story that grows under these difficult conditions.

The cast includes Czech and Slovak actors, such as Antonia Lišková, Karel Dobrý, Jan Révai, Hanse Krása and Mariána Mitaše, as well as famous Romanian actress Maia Morgenstern, who starred in Mel Gibson The passion of Christ.
