Forman’s rarely screened early film is composed of two short films: Audition and If There Were No Music (Kdyby ty muziky nebyly). The former is about Czech provincial life and amateur music-making and is considered one of the films that launched the Czech New Wave. The second is a faux documentary of several talent auditions, providing a snapshot of Czech life in the Bohemian 1960s. The films illuminate a passion for music seen throughout Forman’s work. 1963, 35mm (originally 16mm), in Czech with English subtitles, 77 minutes.
