Our Vasek. On the Power of the Powerless

 

This film, initiated by Polish filmmakers, introduces viewers to how Vaclav Havel was viewed "next door.” In Poland, too, Havel was considered an important person and a symbol. The film sheds light on the little-known relationship between the Polish and Czech opposition and offers a unique testimony on the meetings and actions that helped to bring down the totalitarian regimes in Europe.

With music by Czech bands and singers: The Plastic People of the Universe, Psi vojaci, Pavel Hrubes, Jaroslav Hutka and Marta Kubisova.

Q&A with director Krystyna Krauze after the screening.
