Life As It Is: Miloš Forman on His Czech Films, Part 1

This is the first part of a two-part interview in which director Milos Forman discusses his early career in his native Czechoslovakia. In Part 1, he describes how he first fell in love with show business, failing an audition for theatre school but passing the exam for film school. He then recalls how lucky he and his contemporaries were at the time that several blacklisted writers – including Milan Kundera – were working at the time as teachers, as well as his frustration that Barrandov was only turning out five or six films per year while the film school was graduating as many directors at the same time before covering how he amassed experience in the interim before his feature film debut, BLACK PETER (Černý Petr, 1964).
