I'm backing into the movie business because my father was a well-known Czech song writer, cabaret artist, actor and director know for the songs of Old Prague. But he was also very political and wrote songs making fun of politicians, and satirized the Nazis, which led to he death at Mauthausen a month after I was born. Through a chance encounter, I found a recently found a Hollywood director, Tom Logan, who is "extremely" interested in writing the script and directing the movie, on the theme of using music to fight oppression. I'm now involved in a venture to raise the money to fund the scrpt writing. I'm a journalist turned entrepreneur so am learning the movie business by the seat of the pants. I was born in Prague, grew up i Australia and now live in the US, so I'm on my third citizenship... The photo shiows me with a statue of my father, Karel Hasler, on the castle steps in Prague.
