- When: September 12, 2023, 19:00 – 21:00
No movies can match the investigation of corruption and the mafia in Czechia in the 1990s and 2000s. Investigative journalist Jaroslav Spurný has written a book on the subject entitled Nepohodlný policajt (The Inconvenient Cop), comprising a long interview with Zdeněk Macháček, a key figure in the police’s campaign against the dark side. Much of what is discussed carries over into the present day. Jaroslav Spurný, Zdeněk Macháček and Jana Klímová. Ondřej Kundra will moderate.
