Czech film director Miloš Forman was born on the 18th of February 1932 in Caslav, central Bohemia. Both of his parents died in a Nazi concentration camp during WWII. His films, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus, have acquired particular renown, both gaining him an Academy Award for Best Director.
The public Czech Television (CT) and cinemas present his films as well as documentaries on his life and career. The Film Archive’s Ponrepo cinemas in Prague have been running a month-long retrospective of his films that culminates this weekend.
Forman in 1975 became U.S. citizen. He has won two Oscars and three Golden Globe awards.
