Milos Forman was a crucial figure in my life. I loved his films since I was a girl. When I was 13, a miracle happened: I saw Audition. It changed my world. Suddenly, the life on screen was just like the life I knew in reality. The feeling that films were about some different, better world than mine was gone. Suddenly, I realized that film didn‛t have to create an illusion and instead, it could express a truth about life! To me, that was a crucial discovery. I fell in love with the films of the Czech New Wave and started dreaming of making films myself. To me, these films were a touch of freedom and became part of my feelings, emotions that later formed me, helped me find my own face, my own identity. If it weren’t for Milos Forman, I would’ve never become a film- maker. (H.Trestikova)
