Winton's bravery still inspires filmmakers

SLOVAK director Matej Mináč remains faithful to the story of Nicholas Winton from Great Britain, a man who helped save hundreds of Jewish children from Czechoslovakia before the second world war broke out. In cooperation with screenwriter Jiří Hubač he is working on another film based on this theme, the Czech newswire ČTK reported.
"So far it's called the English Rhapsody. It really is a free continuation [of the previous All My Loved Ones]," Mináč told ČTK. It will be a story of a child genius that, thanks to Winston, makes it to Britain.
