Forman vs. Forman

Forman vs. Forman

  #arts   #memory

An intriguing and resourceful collage portrait of the Czech multi-Oscar-winning director Miloš Forman made up of rare footage, unpublished interviews, snapshots from film sets and home videos directed by Forman himself. An ingenious documentary, bound to exhilarate sworn cinephiles, as it delves into the unseen corridors of a renowned director’s inspiration and personality. Setting off at the foothills of the Prague Spring all the way to Hollywood glamor, we witness the remarkable journey of an orphan boy to stardom and recognition, grasping the key notions of his work: remoteness, disconnectedness, and resistance to any form of oppressive authority.
