The inhabitants are forced to participate in a sickening charade to convince an imminent Red Cross delegation that normal life continues in the Ghetto. Gradually, a sense of the cold grip of terror gathers as the Nazi's grotesque preparations for genocide become clear. Scripted by survivor Arnošt Lustig (Diamonds of the Night), based on his personal experiences and filmed in Terezín itself, Transport from Paradise is a profoundly affecting drama shot through with moments of strange and intense beauty. This powerful and haunting feature lingers in the mind long after viewing is presented for the first time ever in the UK. The DVD is presented from a new digital transfer of the film, with newly translated English subtitles and accompanied by a 20-page booklet featuring an essay by acclaimed playwright and author Roy Kift.
