Showing: Miloš Forman  
Black Peter

One of the first films to herald the arrival of the Czechoslovak New Wave, Miloš Forman’s stylistically inventive debut narrative feature follows the bumbling teenager of the title (Ladislav Jakim) over the course of a directionless summer as he starts (and fails at) a new job, flirts awkwardly, and grows increasingly exasperated with his parents.

The Firemen’s Ball

A milestone of the Czech New Wave, Milos Forman’s first color film, _The Firemen’s Ball_ (_Horí, má panenko_), is both a dazzling comedy and a provocative political satire that chronicles a firemen’s ball where nothing goes right.

Loves of a Blonde

A tender and humorous look at a young woman's journey from the first pangs of romance to its inevitable disappointments, _Loves of a Blonde_ immediately became a classic of the Czech New Wave and earned Milos Forman the first of his Academy Award nominations.
