Based on Ken Kesey’s novel, One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest provides Jack Nicholson with one of his signature roles as a convict imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital, taunted by the formidable Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher).
A rallying cry against conformity, the film was the second movie ever to win all five major Academy Awards, including Forman’s first as Best Director. (133 mins., 35mm)
This touring retrospective was organized by Jytte Jensen, curator in the department of film at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, with the kind collaboration of the Czech Center, New York; The National Film Archive, Prague; and Irene Kovarova, independent film curator and tour manager.
