Documentary: Olga

Date: 20 November 2016 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM, Venue: National Gallery of Art

The National Gallery of Art will feature director Miroslav Janek's documentary Olga in the East Building Auditorium on November 20, at 4 pm. The film follows the life of Olga Havlová, the former First Lady of the Czech Republic who stood beside President Václav Havel even during the most difficult times. 

The film presents previously unknown footage, photos, and stories, revealing Olga as a sharp observer, principled dissident, generous host and down-to-earth woman who despises pomp but loves gentle humour and always says what she thinks. Her friends confirm that even as the first lady of the Czech Republic, her approach to life did not change and she stood firmly with both feet on the ground. Explore the life of this remarkable woman who helped transform a nation. (Dir. Miroslav Janek, 2014, 87 min., Czech with English subtitles)
