The 2012 Mutual Inspirations Festival is dedicated to the work of the famous Czech director Miloš Forman, who celebrated his 80th birthday last week. On Wednesday, February 22, 2012, the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles opened an exhibition of the posters for the films of Miloš Forman. Within the exhibit of the posters are also prints from artists Jan Weber, Petr Sisa, and Vladimír Bidlo. The posters are available for viewing in the lobby of the Consulate, during public hours: Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.
After the poster opening ceremony on Wednesday, attendees were invited to visit the on-site screening room and experience a documentary honoring the life and work of perhaps the most well-renowned Czech director, Miloš Forman. Prior the screening, Consul General Michal Sedláček thanked Jiří Planner, long-time collaborator with Miloš Forman, for providing the documentary. The event was received with widespread enthusiasm.
The Forman festival will continue with the screening of his first feature film: “Černý Petr” (Black Peter), 1963. The film, a dark comedy, reflects the harsh yet humorous reality of finding and starting work as a Czechoslovak teenager. It will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 7:00 pm.
