Nebe v podzemí (Orig.) / 2013 / Czech Republic / 52 min
A film about Prague’s secret church during the totalitarian regime and after the revolution, describing its activities and confrontations with the state power. An interesting and thrilling history of good and evil, courage of the individual actors, the moral stance of people in extreme situations when exposed to the pressure of the circumstances. What motivated these people to sacrifice themselves, or, in some cases, even their whole families in the name of their “spiritual belief”?
Poslední "V" Václava Havla (Orig.) / 2012 / Czech Republic / 11 min
A short film shot at the state funeral of Václav Havel during which the leaving statesman comments his own memorial service for the final time. For he has nothing more to lose he can finally say things without restraint. The last breath and awakening in the arms of the Dalajlama.
