Dendy Newtown 27 & 28 OCT
We read with interest this weekend that apparently Donald Trump is about to authorise the release of secret files about JFK’S assassination in 1963.
(Full story by New York Times here: http://nyti.ms/2xbhxdT )
With all the conspiracy and assassination theories which have swirled around JFK’s death – everything from the CIA to the Mafia ordering the hit on the president – we couldn’t help but be reminded of the political intrigue and drama which played out much closer to home in the newly created Slovakia of the early 1990s.
Illegal kidnappings, organised crime, Mafia and secret service interference in politics all seemed to be the new normal. The abuse of power by those in power and the extraordinary lengths they went to, to eliminate their political rivals during those turbulent years is expertly portrayed in the Slovak political thriller Únos (Kidnapping) screening on Saturday evening at 7 pm.
And watching the drama unfold on the big screen, it’s hard to believe that this was political reality only some 20 years ago.
