Natascha Drubek discusses Eighty letters (Osmdesát dopisů, CZ, 2011, 75 min) with the film's director, Václav Kadrnka.



Václav Kadrnka was born in 1973 in Gottwaldov (now Zlín), Czechoslovakia. In 1987, when the ČSSR was not touched by perestroika, yet, his mother filed an application for emigration to the United Kingdom. Her husband had already fled to England earlier. The family was reunited in 1988. When 1989 brought political changes in his homeland, Kadrnka revisited Czechoslovakia. In 1992 he decided to stay. From 1999 to 2008 he studied to be a film director at the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU) in Prague. Since 2008 he has worked as a director, screenwriter and producer. He also was an assistant director of new wave legend Vojtěch Jasný. 80 letters (Osmdesát dopisů, 2011) is his debut feature, other films are the shorts: Lidé z autobusů / Passengers, 2002. Druhý život dřeva / Elegy of Wood, 2009.
