Havel Heart

2012 / Czech Republic / 3min

Crowds of people are gathering at Vaclav Havel's funeral and in the meantime, politicians are voting for a law that would confirm Vaclav Havel as the one who was responsible for creating the Czech state. Street sweeps are collecting candles that were brought by mourners and artists are creating a monumental heart from them. It almost seems that with the melting candles, the need for personal interpretation of Havel's legacy disappears as well.
