MATEJ Mináč's documentary, Nicholas Winton: Sila ľudskosti (The Power of Good), which won an Emmy Award for Best Foreign Documentary in 2002, will come to Slovak cinemas on September 30, reported news agency TASR.

The film tells the remarkable story of British businessman Nicholas Winton, who saved 669 Czech and Slovak Jewish children from the horrors of the Holocaust. One of the survivors, now a reporter with Canadian CBC television, Joe Schlesinger, is the film's main narrator.

The British monarch, Queen Elisabeth II, honoured the 95-year-old Winton, often referred to as Britain's Schindler, with a knighthood in the 2003 New Year honours list. Winton kept the story secret for 50 years until his wife found a book of cuttings and letters from the parents of the rescued children.

Mináč filmed the story in cooperation with screenwriter and producer Patrik Paššo and it was produced by Czech and Slovak television companies. The film was premiered in 2001.
