Introduced by Pavla Veličkinová

Olga Havlová, the famously forthright first lady of the postcommunist Czech Republic, was a rebel who played a major role on world stages during her husband Václav Havel’s years of imprisonment, and then later, when Havel became the country’s first president. Olga, a unique portrait of this charismatic and wise woman by renowned Czech director Miroslav Janek, is assembled from previously unknown footage, photos, and stories, revealing Olga as a sharp observer, principled dissident, generous host, and down-to-earth woman who despised pomp and always said what she thought. (Miroslav Janek, 2014, DCP, subtitles, 87 minutes) Presented through the cooperation of the Embassy of the Czech Republic.
