Film & Beer Series: Listopad - A Memory of the Velvet Revolution

November 19, 2019, 7:00 PM

Bistro Bohem will screen the film Listopad: A Memory of the Velvet Revolution on November 19, 2019, at 7 pm. Listopad is the story of the spirited friendship between three teenaged boys, swept up in the Velvet Revolution of 1989. Petr, Jiri and Ondrej are an unlikely trio of friends. An artist, a hockey player and a music trader, the boys survive Communism by playing sports, drinking beer, chasing girls and listening to underground music. They are bound together by their desire for freedom. Based upon true stories from the Velvet Revolution, Listopad is a timeless story of political and artistic courage. Seen through the eyes of Petr, Jiri and Ondrej, the film 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 Prague to stand up for their hopes and dreams of freedom. (Dir. Gary Griffin, 2014, 90 minutes, in Czech with English subtitles)

The screening is part of the ongoing Film and Beer Series at Bistro Bohem in collaboration with the Embassy of the Czech Republic.
