LOVES OF A BLONDE
LÁSKY JEDNÉ PLAVOVLÁSKY
1965, Janus Films, 82 min, Czechoslovakia, Dir: Milos Forman

With 16 women to each man, the odds are against Andula in her desperate search for love - that is, until a rakish piano player visits her small factory town and temporarily eases her longings. A tender and humorous look at Andula’s journey, 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 Milos Forman the first of his Academy Award nominations.


BLACK PETER
CERNÝ PETR
1964, Janus Films, 85 min, Czechoslovakia, Dir: Milos Forman

Shot on a low budget with non-professional actors, Milos Forman’s feature debut displays the sly humor and naturalism that put the director at the forefront of the Czech new wave of the 1960s. With his father constantly badgering him, 16-year-old Petr (Ladislav Jakim) trades a summer hanging out with friends for a job as a supermarket trainee - where his primary duty is to spy on the customers and prevent shoplifting.


Both films in Czech with English subtitles. | Screening formats: 35mm (LOVES OF A BLONDE), DCP (BLACK PETER)
