Citizen Havel Is Rolling the Empty Barrels / Obcan Havel prikuluje DVD
The documentary Citizen Havel delves into the era of Czechoslovak normalization and Václav Havel's journey. It explores the creation of Havel's famous play, "Audience," in 1974 when he worked in a brewery in Trutnov to avoid accusations of parasitism due to the ban on play performances. The film showcases the brewery environment, coworkers who inspired Havel, and the underground recording of "Audience." It also highlights the media's reaction, such as Jiřina Bohdalová's refusal to denounce Havel. The documentary includes a significant part of "Audience" using archival material, providing insights into Havel's transformative experiences during that period.
