And Give My Love To The Swallows

...And Give My Love To The Swallows tells the true story of Maruska Kuderikova, a courageous, young Moravian girl who was a part of the Czech resistance during World War II. Maruska was arrested by the Nazis for her resistance work, an experience she chronicled in a makeshift diary.

Director Jaromil Jires (Valerie and Her Week of Wonders; The Joke) transformed her letters and diary into an uplifting tale of sacrifice for the sake of a better life and future. Jires, part of the legendary Czech New Wave, skillfully cuts between Maruska's daily life in the Nazi prison camp to her past adventures in the resistance. The interplay between past and present, plus the evocative cinematography makes for a poetic style that emphasizes the spirituality of the story.

And Give My Love To The Swallows is a true tale of honor and heroism still relevant for our time.
