Vaclav Havel finishes shooting film
PRAGUE, Czech Republic — Former President Vaclav Havel has finished shooting his first and probably last film.
Havel spokeswoman Ivana Reichlova says the former dissident playwright and post-communist Czechoslovakia’s first president finished on-location camera work on the film on Saturday.
The film is a cinematic version of “Leaving,” a Havel play that was staged two years ago. His actress wife, Dagmar, plays the leading female role.
The daily Mlada Fronta Dnes on Monday quoted Havel as saying the film will probably also be his last one.
