Iveta Grófová Shoots Slovak/Czech/Hungarian War Drama Emma and the Death’s Head.
Emma and the Death’s Head tells the story of Marika, a Hungarian widow who shelters a young Jewish boy in her home on the Slovak-Hungarian border near Bratislava during the turbulent years of WWII and the Wartime Slovak State. It also tells the story of the boy, Šimon, who survives the tribulations of war thanks to Marika and his imagination. It is a film about the fragile boundaries between the imperatives of humanity and self-preservation in circumstances where one just about excludes the other.
The film has an international cast with Slovak-Hungarian actress Alexandra Borbély in the lead.
The release of the film is planned for 2023. The film is co-produced by Campfilm.
