Film: Citizen Havel Is Rolling Barrels

On September 26, at 12 noon, Fort Fringe-The Shop will show the documentary Citizen Havel Is Rolling Barrels (Obcan Havel prikuluje). In 1974, banned playwright Václav Havel worked in a brewery so that he would not be accused of social parasitism. He ended up rolling barrels and filtering beer for nearly a year even though he drove a Mercedes to work. His experiences started him down a new path in writing. He wrote his first autobiographical play Audience, in a single night. The film relates stories of the genesis, the productions and the cultural reverberations of Havel’s influential one-act. Admission is free. (Jan Novak, 2009, 72 minutes, Czech with English subtitles)

Event begins at 12:00PM
