Having heard from Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan about one of the main reasons for signing up to Anthropoid being that of director Sean Ellis’s preceding feature Metro Manila, we sat down with the filmmaker himself to discuss his move from the Filipino┬ácapital to Prague, depicting a remarkable set of events that took place amidst the horrors of WW2.

Ellis spoke to us about the wealth of stories from around the world and what interests him as a filmmaker. He also discusses why he decided to cast English-language actors in this film, and his own experiences visiting Prague, and the church that provides the setting for the breathtaking final act.

Anthropoid is released on September 9th. You can read our 4* review here.
