Transatlantyk Festival Plans Miloś Forman Retrospective

The Transatlantyk Poznan International Film and Music Festival will honor renowned Czech film director Miloś Forman with a retrospective at this year's inaugural event, which runs from August 5-13, in western Poland.

The series will screen many of the director's most popular and critically acclaimed works, ranging from his early films Black Peter (1964), Loves of a Blonde (1965) and The Firemen's Ball (1967), as well as the director's documentaries and short films produced in Czechoslovakia prior to his immigration to the United States.

Showcasing his early American work, audiences will be treated to screenings of the multi-Oscar winning One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), his film adaptation of the iconic musical “Hair” (1979), and the internationally acclaimed Amadeus (1984). Later work featured in the retrospective includes The People Vs. Larry Flynt (1996) and Goya's Ghosts (2006).

Miloś Śmidmajer’s documentary film What Doesn't Kill You (2009) will also be screened, giving audiences an extensive overview of Forman's life, personal struggles and achievements.

Born in 1932 in Caslav, a small town outside of Prague, Forman's parents died in the Nazi death camps during World War II. In the early 1950s, Forman studied at the University of Prague's film institute (FAMU) and began his career directing short films and documentaries, working with many colleagues who became major figures in the so-called “Czech New Wave” of the early 1960s. Following the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in August 1968, Forman (who was in Paris at the time) immigrated to the United States, where he has lived ever since.

Considered by many film scholars to be one of the greatest living directors, Forman's body of work is not easily categorized in terms of genre, although its spirit could be broadly termed anti-authoritarian. A recurring thematic element which characterizes his films are protagonists who find themselves in opposition to authority or the prevailing mores of their environments, sometimes surmounting the obstacles they face, and sometimes succumbing to forces which defeat them.

In addition to screening approximately 150 films, the Transatlantyk festival program includes master classes, lectures, seminars, workshops and discussion panels. For more information, visit the website, www.transatlantyk.org
