Ondrej Trojan Receives His ‘Citizenship Card’

Scripted by Petr Jarchovský, Trojan’s Citizenship Card is described as a coming-of-age tragicomedy about four students as they receive their first ID cards.

2003’s Zelary (a foreign language Academy Award nominee released by Sony Pictures Classics) put director Ondrej Trojan on the international map, the WWII drama romance where a bride takes in a hubby in order to save him from certain death was poignant without being forcefully melodramatic. Despite all the buzz, Trojan was perhaps more in his comfort zone as a producer for Jan Hrebejk‘s body of work – he produced the filmmaker’s previous three pictures. Trojan will be now tackle another period pic, this times the 1970’s communist Czechoslovakia and will produce via his production company Total HelpArt (THA).

Scripted by Petr Jarchovský, Trojan’s Citizenship Card is described as a coming-of-age tragicomedy about four students as they receive their first ID cards. Shooting began April 25 in Prague.
The film is expected to be completed in time for a possible Cannes inclusion, and will hit the Czech market in the Fall.
