Václav Havel – A Life in Freedom

July 10

Czech Republic | 2014 | 71 minutes | Andrea Sedláčková

The 1989 Velvet Revolution was led by Václav Havel, a playwright and poet who became Czechoslovakia’s first democratically elected president and one of the great figures of twentieth century Europe. Director Andrea Sedláĉková maps Havel’s life with extensive film clips and interviews to fashion an elegant portrait of a bohemian artist whose life below and then above ground was rich in paradoxes.
