Episode 381: Dita Saxová (1968)

Guest Co-Host: Chris Stachiw

Czechtember 2018 continues with a look at Antonín Moskalyk’s Dita Saxová (1968). Adapted by (Diamonds in the Night, Transport from Paradise) and based on his novel, the film is the story of our titular Dita Saxova (Krystyna Mikolajewska), a survivor of Nazi death camps who carries with her survivor’s guilt. She moves from one relationship to another without seeming to have a care in the world, though this ultimately doesn’t seem to be the case.

Chris Stachiw of Kulture Shocked joins Mike to discuss this devastating film.
