Once Upon a Time in Paradise

"Once Upon a Time in Paradise" tells the story of the talented young Czech climber Joska Smítko, who was deported to Theresienstadt with his colleagues and executed there in 1945 by the Nazis.

Directors Peter Palka and Dan Krzywon created a compelling and compassionate portrait of this fateful period. Jiri Petr was responsible for the entire nature and climbing footage as well as for the 2nd unit camera.
