Forman vs. Forman

  •   Jakub Hejna, Helena Třeštíková
  •   Czech Republic, France

“You are never free—there’s always some kind of pressure,“ says Milos Forman in this illuminating doc about the two-time Oscar®-winner (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus). Through a treasure trove of archival footage, we see Forman overcoming the oppressive systems—from Nazism and Communism to Hollywood—that shaped his cinema of resistance. A candid tribute, Forman vs. Forman shows an artist constantly in the throes of creative and political struggle.

“This lucid account will be embraced wherever there’s interest in the creative and political struggle.”
