Scam, cocaine, and handiwork
06. 10. 2021 – Žilina
A gangster comedy about five different guys with one common goal is reminiscent of Tarantino’s film Pulp Fiction with its style, choice of environment and humor. The biggest boss decides to complete an old gig. All that is needed is to get a jackhammer and drill a hole in the wall of an old castle and take a big pile of cash which is hidden there since an old unfinished robbery. Everything would have worked if it weren’t for the beauty of Pamela and the fact that these tough guys are too peculiar. They do not have a rich intellect or a sense of humor and they have goosebumps from seeing corpses. However they fully compensate everything with rough talk and the power of fists. A series of exciting and funny events begin.
Directed by: Eduard Kudláč

Till 10 10. 2021 – Ostrava
The legion train consists of 14 renovated wagons which represent a military eshelony (a troop train). During 1918 – 1920 tens of thousands of Czechoslovak legionaries were transported across Russia along the Trans-Siberian Highway and they often had to force the passage by fighting the Bolsheviks. The legion train consists of field post wagons, the teplushki (troop trains), medical, film, command, staff, armored, sales, tailoring, blacksmith (reconstructed in Slovakia), accommodation and two platform wagons. In all carriages, visitors will find an authentic reconstruction of equipment, legionnaires in period uniforms as well as original items and several hundred photographs on panels mapping the history of the Czechoslovak legions.
