Milos Forman

Milos Forman became known around the world for his film ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (1976) with Jack Nicholson, and AMADEUS (1984), a biopic about Mozart. Forman has since been regarded as one of the most successful directors in film history.

Born near Prague in 1932, Forman first attracted attention with his films LOVES OF A BLOND (1965) and THE FIREMAN’S BALL (1967), in which he casts a critical eye upon Czech society. He emigrated to the USA in 1968 after the suppression of the Prague Spring.

His Oscar-winning successes were followed by the film version of the musical HAIR (1979) and THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT, a film about the publisher of Hustler magazine, which received the Berlinale’s Golden Bear.
