Summary "Examines the struggle for freedom during the Communist era in Czechoslovakia. Featuring Vaclav Havel, who ascended to power during the bloodless Velvet Revolution of 1989, and his fellow dissidents, this film investigates haunting questions about the country’s Communist past. Contrasting the experiences of those who fought against the Communist regime, with the silent majority who supported it, The Power Of The Powerless investigates why many Czechs today don’t want their Communist past dug up. The film also looks at the relevance of the Velvet Revolution today and asks why the majority of young Czechs know nothing about it and why they are not being taught about their own history." -- website
