Film: ‘Listopad’ + Q&A with Film Producer Jeffrey Brown
November 17, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM$5
Listopad is a film that brings to life the exhilarating days of November 1989 when, in spite of everything and everyone arrayed against them, students, artists and dissidents filled the streets of Praha (Prague) to stand up for their hopes and dreams of freedom. The film tells the story of three teenage boys who were swept up in the Velvet Revolution.
Special guest Jeffrey Brown, the film’s producer, will answer questions about the film following the screening. NCSML Curator Stefanie Kohn will discuss the Velvet Revolution and why it is still important today.
