70 min.

Hundreds of hours of material have been filmed about Václav Havel, yet a biographical film depicting the life story of the great European has been missing. Havel's colourful life – his family, his childhood, his loves, his dramatic work and his political activities – is captured in a 70-minute documentary by director Andrea Sedláčková, who presents Havel in all stages and roles of his life, including as an intellectual rebel, a lover of women and life, and an admirer of the underground and rockers.
