Citizen Havel

Citizen Havel

After the split-up of Czechoslovakia in 1992, former political dissident, leader of the Velvet Revolution, playwright and essayist Václav Havel became the first president of a new country, the Czech Republic. Thus it came to pass that a former enemy of the state was actually given the popular mandate to transform that state and its institutions. Such events are not commonplace, so from the beginning, he permitted his friend, filmmaker Pavel Koutecký, to be with him and capture as much of it as possible, whether in Prague Castle or around the world.
