Oscar winning film director Miloš Forman is widely accepted as one of the most important directors of this century. At eight years old, Forman was orphaned when his parents were arrested for being a part of a Nazi resistance group. Forman went on to become the central figure of the Czech New Wave film movement that was born in Czechoslovakia in the 1960's, and then to win multiple Oscars for his Hollywood films One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Amadeus.
This 2011 documentary captures director Miloš Forman’s recent life and state of mind, as well as his fascinating past and his impressive career. It includes interviews and statements from his family members, friends, actors and other colleagues.
