Please note that the screening on Saturday 16 November will now be followed by a Q&A with the director Helena Třeštíková.

Helena Třeštíková’s latest film, alongside co-director Jakub Hejna, tells the extraordinary life story of the late, great Czech director, Milos Forman. The film creates a collage of rare private and official archive footage alongside autobiographical memories narrated by the filmmaker’s son, Petr Forman. Forman achieved international acclaim for his early films like A Blonde in Love and Fireman’s Ball, spearheading the influential Czech New Wave in the early 60s. He then went on to even greater success in Hollywood with multiple Oscar-winning films Amadeus and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
