This film, initiated by Polish filmmakers, introduces viewers to how Vaclav Havel was viewed "next door.” In Poland, too, Havel was considered an important person and a symbol. The film sheds light on the little-known relationship between the Polish and Czech opposition and offers a unique testimony on the meetings and actions that helped to bring down the totalitarian regimes in Europe.

With music by Czech bands and singers: The Plastic People of the Universe, Psi vojaci, Pavel Hrubes, Jaroslav Hutka and Marta Kubisova.

Q&A with director Krystyna Krauze after the screening.
