Beta Film has announced at MIPTV in Cannes that it has picked up the distribution rights for HBO Europe's three-part miniseries Burning Bush.
Directed by Academy Award nominee Agnieszka Holland, Burning Bush depicts the story of Jan Palach, the young student who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom in Prague in January 1969, and relates the legal fight by his family to clear his name in the face of the communist propaganda machine.
Burning Bush rolled out on HBO Europe across 15 countries at the beginning of this year.
Based on real characters and events, Burning Bush is HBO Europe's most ambitious, big-budget project to date.
