Slávek Horák

Director, Producer, Writer

Slávek Horák studied at the Zlín Film School under Jan Gogola. He then attended Prague’s FAMU, taking courses in feature film direction and screenwriting; however, having become so successful directing commercial spots (he shot over 120 of them over the space of fifteen years), he ended up not completing his studies. As second assistant director he worked on the set of Jan Svěrák’s Kolya, awarded the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. He shot two short films for the international project Straight8, both of which were selected in their respective years for the final six and screened at the festival in Cannes. His feature debut Home Care (2015), a bittersweet rural dramedy about dying and sacrifice, was selected as Czech Oscar contender. At the moment, Horák finishes his second film, a biopic of the celebrated Czech playwright, dissident, and statesman - Václav Havel.
