Represented by directors including Miloš Forman, František Vláčil, Věra Chytilová, Jan Němec, Dušan Hanák and Štefan Uher, the Czechoslovak New Wave was an artistically ambitious and highly political cinematic movement that emerged in the ’60s as a response to the regime of oppression in Soviet-occupied Czechoslovakia. Shibuya's Image Forum now highlights nine landmark films from that time, including the satirical A Report on the Party and the Guests (1966) by Jan Němec and Věra Chytilová's Daisies (1966), which led to its director being banned from working in her homeland for almost a decade.
