Close-Up and Czech Centre London present a season focusing on the rejection of established cinematic norms core to the early works of Czech director Miloš Forman
and his contemporaries from the British Free Cinema
movement. Marking the occasion of Miloš Forman
’s 85th birthday, and screening mostly from original 16mm and 35mm prints, this programme uncovers for the first time the striking and instructive resemblances in the development of Czech and British cinema which evolved on parallel and sometimes interconnecting courses.
