Prominent personalities, experts, and filmmakers both from the Czech Republic and abroad form an integral part of UK/UH.

2017 Guests

We are pleased to announce our first confirmed guests who will greatly contribute to our programme.

Terri Hooley

A hero of the famous film Good Vibrations, an orthodox “Hooleygan”, and a punk soul of Belfast. While others were grabbing the guns, Hooley opened a vinyl shop and chose music for his weapon. Hooley will arrive at UK/UH 2017 to introduce “his own” film, to lead a discussion on The Troubles and, hopefully, jump behind the turntables too. 

David Sládek

Fotograf a nezávislý žurnalista žijící od roku 2006 ve Velké Británii. Vystudoval učitelství anglického jazyka a výtvarné výchovy v Plzni. Několik let působil jako zpravodaj České tiskové kanceláře, poté krátce v public relations, než se přestěhoval do Anglie, kde pracuje jako byznys analytik. Současně studuje na Institutu tvůrčí fotografie v Opavě.

to the ideas of the Sex Pistols.”
