Launch of the book Václav Havel a Film. Scénáře, analýzy a úvahy z let 1957–1989 (Vaclav Havel and Film: Screenplays, Analyses and Reflections, 1957–1989). The freshly issued collection of work by Václav Havel includes research discoveries, such as previously unpublished screenplays and texts for and about film. It has been edited by Professor Jan Bernard of FAMU film school and is being published by the Václav Havel Library in cooperation with the National Film Archive.
Cinematographer Ivan Šlapeta and Dagmar and Ivan Havel will recall the playwright’s filmmaking and acting efforts, including in Every Young Man by Pavel Juráček and the dissident video production Long Live Fronda!
From our archives we will screen, for the first time, the short film A Fateful Night, for which Václav Havel wrote the screenplay based on Vasila Biľak’s memoir and which was made by Andrej Krob and the Divadlo na tahu theatre company.
