Biographical film about the renowned Czech writer, dissident, and national leader, Václav Havel. Over the course of 30 years, the film follows Havel’s transformation from a carefree bohemian into a fierce human rights activist. It’s a story about a man torn between his passions and ideals. To command the nation, Havel must first take command of himself. Infused with his signature irreverent theatrical humour, the second film by Slávek Horák (Home Care – ZFF 2015) is an ode to Havel as an artist, a great entertainer, but also a man who, with his deep understanding of human nature, knew not only to entertain, but also to inspire and move masses to change to world.
He studied at the Zlín Film School and at FAMU in Prague. He worked on the set of Jan Svěrák’s Kolya (Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film) as second assistant director. His debut feature Home Care (ZFF 2015; Karlovy Vary 2015 – Best Actress) was the Czech entry for the Academy Awards and went on to screen at numerous international festivals. Havel is his second feature.
