Dukla 61

Dukla 61

A two-part television film focused on the family of an elite miner and set against the backdrop of the biggest mining disaster of the second half of the 20th century, which left 108 men dead. A family drama capturing the story of a period when socialism was alive, work conditions resembled capitalism and the last of the last was first. In Czechoslovakia’s newest city Havířov records were broken, but so were people – in the name of the Red Star shining above the region’s showcase, the Dukla mine, which was about to switch from a six-day to five-day working week. It possessed the highest quality coal, coal that needed to be extracted in the interests of the socialist economy. At any price.
