To celebrate the life and work of Miloš Forman, who sadly passed on to that great auditorium in the sky earlier this month, MUBI present a double-bill from the acclaimed Czech-born filmmaker.
These two early works showcase Forman’s inquisitive, off-kilter eye and sit alongside his resonant classics One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus and The People vs. Larry Flynt.
Audition - 24th April on MUBI
This mix of documentary and fiction offers a humorous look at different kinds of competitions and the motivations of their talented (and less-talented) participants. Set to a wonderful, diverse soundtrack of Czech music, Forman's first major work is both light and passionate in tone.
Loves of A Blonde - 25th April on MUBI
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 Miloš Forman the first of his Academy Award nominations.
