Milos Forman's love of a lollipop is also screened at the Cannes festival

Milos Forman, a world-famous American filmmaker of Czech origin, also died last year at this year's Cannes Film Festival. The official Cannes Classics program features a screening of Forman's 1965 hit film, which was also nominated for an Oscar.

One of the emblematic creations of the Czech New Wave, which was first seen at the Venice Film Festival in 1965, was completely renovated and digitized.

The Love of the One, which was an Eastern European success movie of the sixties, returns to Czech cinema museums in June and is broadcast in limited distribution by some cinema networks.

Previously, two 1960s works by Milos Forman (1932-2018) have been restored and digitized, "There is Fire, Baby!" and Peter the Black. The digitization of older classic Czech (Czechoslovak) films is organized by the National Film Museum in Prague for public money. & Nbsp;

Most of the restored Czech films are then re-screened at various international festivals because they are less well-known in the Western and American worlds.

The festival will also screen Forma versus Forman by Helena the Czech documentary filmmaker Trestíková and Jakub Hejna, which recounts the adventurous life of the renowned artist based on Jan Novák's Milos Forman.

After Forman's 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, he made his most famous films, Hair, Flying the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus, leaving the United States.
