Haifa Film Festival

Also this year the Czech Centre Tel Aviv is participating at the Haifa International Film Festival, which will také place on 12 – 21. 10 2019. Czech Republic will be represented by two movies Forman vs Forman by directors Helena Třeštíková & Jakub Hejna and by movie A Certain Kind of Silence by director Michal Hagenauer.

 

Forman vs. Forman

Forman vs. Forman is a comprehensive portrait of filmmaker Milos Forman (1932-2018). A filmmaker decorated with Oscars for Amadeus and One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, a charismatic adventurer with the courage to question himself, the documentary delves into his life and work, from his impoverished childhood hiding from the Nazis to his Hollywood success.

Celebrated Czech documentarian Helena Třeštíková and her longtime editor Jakub Hejna find new insights in archival materials hitherto unknown and create a fascinating portrait of Milos Forman’s life, work and philosophy.

A Certain Kind of Silence

Mia, a young Czech au-pair, begins working abroad in the upscale suburban home of a well-to-do family. She is hired to look after Sebastian, the family’s ten-year-old son and struggles not to be intimated by the chilly elegance of the villa, the impeccably groomed owners and the many strange rules of the household. Inevitably, the subtle psychological manipulations begin to have an effect.

Inspired by real events, Michal Hogenauer’s feature debut is a beautifully composed psychological thriller that combines gorgeous aesthetic experience with an increasing sense of evil.
