Diamonds of the Night
More About Diamonds of the Night
Director Nemec's debut feature film renders the harrowing tale of two boys' escape from a train bound for a Nazi concentration camp. Five years in the making, the film transcends the theme of war and anti-Nazism to deal with man's struggle to preserve human dignity. Also includes his short "A Bite to Eat," which concerns one man's attempt to steal a loaf of bread from a Nazi-guarded train. The film was Nemec's diploma film at the Prague Film Academy.
