Věra Chytilová

Chytilová was born in Ostrava, Czechoslovakia in 1929. From 1957-1962 she studied film directing under Otakar Vávra at FAMU. In 1966 Chytilova made a witty surrealist comedy Daisies (1966), which was immediately banned, but then was released in 1967, and won the Grand Prix at the Bergamo Film Festival. For six years Chytilová was banned from making films and her films were often "shelved" for reasons of political censorship. Chytilová belongs among the foremost directors of the 1960's Czech New Wave, which was influenced by both the French New Wave and Italian Neo-Realism.
