Citizen Havel

Brooklyn Public Library is screening the movie CITIZEN HAVEL

Documentary, Czech Republic, 2017, 120 min.
Directed by Pavel Koutecký and Miroslav Janek

An absorbing cinéma-vérité portrait of dissident playwright-turned-statesman Václav Havel through his private moments and backroom dealings. Spanning from 1992, prior to Havel’s election as president of the newly formed Czech Republic, through his defeat in 2003 and beyond, the film is a revealing look at a tumultuous period and the development of ideas and decision-making that defines Havel. After the tragic death of director Pavel Koutecký, the film was completed by fellow documentarian Miroslav Janek.
