Heaven Underground

Heaven Underground

2013 / Czech Republic / 52min

A film about Prague’s secret church during the totalitarian regime and after the revolution, describing its activities and confrontations with the state power. An interesting and thrilling history of good and evil, courage of the individual actors, the moral stance of people in extreme situations when exposed to the pressure of the circumstances. What motivated these people to sacrifice themselves, or, in some cases, even their whole families in the name of their “spiritual belief”?
