The Power of the Powerless documentary film screening
A must-see film currently being used by human rights organizations in Burma, Cuba and the Middle East, "The Power of the Powerless" tells the inspirational story of the Velvet Revolution of 1989- a bloodless achievement comparable to those of Nelson Mandela in South Africa or Mahatma Gandhi in India. Featuring original interviews with outspoken dissidents such as the famous playwright and former president, Vaclav Havel, The Power of the Powerless examines the harmful effects of suppressing the truth and the failure to admit past mistakes, twenty years after the fall of communism in Czechoslovakia. Narrated by Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons.
Join the film director and producer as well as the Czech Consul General for a Q and A after the March 11, 7:10 screening.
