The Czech COURAGE team organized an all day movie screening for students, teachers and visitors of the Faculty of Arts at Charles University on 15 November 2016. Documentaries and movies were followed by discussions: students met several authors and witnesses – for example, history professor Vilém Prečan, founder of The Czechoslovak Documentation Centre, and the well-known sociologist dr. Jiřina Šiklová CSc. The audience could see almost twenty films about tramping, punk music, underground communities, independent art or samizdat literature. The final movie was Ať žije Fronda! filmed by the Czech dissent community around Václav Havel. It was an exclusive screening of this digitalized film.
