British-Czech Writer / Filmmaker
My name is Mirek Gosney. Welcome to my website documenting forgotten and underrepresented histories. Its creation stemmed from my frustration with the whitewashed, straitjacket history presented in the classroom. All history is significant and continues to shape the world around us today. I also write about Film and Gaming.
I currently write for the Newbury Weekly News. I also have a professional background as a Production Assistant in Theatre Production and Advertising and in teaching Filmmaking to children and young adults.
Member of the RAF Welford Historical Society.
Member of Thatcham Town Council Heritage Working Party.
Graduated with a 2:1 in BA Film and History from the University of Southampton. Received a First-Class Honours for my Dissertation evaluating the contributions of The Czechoslovak New Wave to Czech cinema in the 1960s.
