Film on Villa Tugendhat gets TV premiere on eve of New York screening

A new documentary about Brno’s Villa Tugendhat is being premiered on public broadcaster Czech Television on Sunday evening. Alongside period footage, Osud jménem Tugendhat (A Fate Named Tugendhat) features some dramatic re-enactments of events surrounding the history of the world-renowned functionalist building, which reopened earlier this year after extensive renovation work. On Monday, the film will be screened at the Bohemian National Hall in New York as part of the Brno Days–New York event promoting the Moravian capital.
