Miroslav Janek’s first experiences with shooting documentaries came as an amateur filmmaker in the 1970s. In 1980, he moved to the USA, where he shot numerous original movies and also worked as an editor on, among other things, the films of Godfrey Reggio. He returned to Prague in the mid-1990s, and began to work on documentaries for Czech Television. Following the death of Pavel Koutecký, he completed his film Citizen Havel (2007). He also filmed portraits of Drahomíra Vihanová (Burning, 2012) and Olga Havlová (Olga, 2014).
