Trailer For New Czech-Slovak Film WILSON CITY Promises Black Comedy And Genre Pastiche
New Czech-Slovak film Wilson City has an English subbed trailer that promises a comedic genre romp come its domestic release in October. Originally based on a story by Slovak writer Michal Hvorecký, "The Worst Crime in Wilson City", dubbed as Czechoslovak gothic horror, the film is inspired by paperback crime novels and penny dreadfuls and looks to uncoil within the boundaries of a thriller comedy.

The story of an adventurous search for a mysterious murderer who just after the end of the First World War has begun a rampage in Wilson City, a jerkwater town somewhere in Eastern Europe. The investigation is being led by an inhomogeneous pair of detectives - a greenhorn and local police cadet named Eisner and an experienced FBI officer Food sent to Europe by US President Woodrow Wilson himself." 
It's an ambitious project in regards to domestic production, let alone being a genre pastiche. A handful of CGI was put to use in order to recreate the period of 1918-1919, with Slovakia´s capital city named after Woodrow Wilson and ready to join United States of America right after World War I. The film is co-produced by the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Wilson City was presented at the film market in Cannes though further releases in other countries have yet to be confirmed.
