Václav Havel, Prague - Castle, part II.

FILM. Czech director Petr Jančárek will personally present the second part of his documentary trilogy and introduce his new project HavelMovie.

The film “Václav Havel, Prague - Castle” presents a window into the life of the former President of the Czech Republic during first two years of his presidency. Interviews with Havel, his advisors and staff, as well as with president George Bush, Fareed Zakaria, His Hollines Dalai Lama, song writer Suzanne Vega and others, tells the story of a truly unique period in the history of the former Czechoslovakia and the complex personality of the former President, who suddenly went from being a dissident to becoming the head of a free democratic state.

In 2009, the former Czech President Václav Havel offered Jančárek the opportunity to document his life. During the last three years of Havel’s life, unique material was created that captured both public and private activities of a world-renown figure. Explore a very personal view of Havel with the director of “HavelMovie” himself.

A Q&A session with director Jančárek follows the screening.
