CRUCIAL YEARS

FAMOUS FIRSTS FILM SERIES: THE DEBUT FILMS OF FAMU´S LEGENDARY DIRECTORS

RSVP


CRUCIAL YEARS
Director: Juraj Jakubisko, 1967, 95 mins, Czechoslovakia

Crucial Years, an experimental autobiographical reflection, won a FIPRESCI critics award and announced Jakubisko’s imaginative style to the world. This film follows a Slovak artist in Prague who has been living an all too carefree life. Now he must choose: between two women, between the city and the country, and between making a living and following his passion.

Jakubisko graduated from FAMU in 1966.
 

In Jakubisko‘s films the irrational, miraculous and fabulous appear as naturally as life itself, but not all of have Jakubisko's eye to enable us to see the miraculous, unexpected and fantastic, even in simple everyday daily life.  -Federico Fellini

 

FAMOUS FIRST FILM SERIES

The Famous Firsts film series showcases the debut feature films of preeminent Eastern European directors, all of whom studied at the prestigious FAMU (Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts) in Prague and went on to gain recognition on the world’s stage.

Young directors are full of ideas and hungry to make their mark on the world. A director’s first film is a raw expression of their voice and visual style. It often contains the seeds of their future masterworks. This series brings together the passionate radical beginnings of five important cinematic voices.
