Peter is tentatively taking his first steps into the adult world; he has a new job and a new focus for his burgeoning erotic fantasies - provoking conflict with the older generation. This key work of Forman’s emerging vital talent brought to the screen something that Czechoslovak filmgoers weren’t used to: an authentic testimony about the lives of young people. With a cast of mainly non-professional actors, Black Peter conjures up a naturalistic and witty portrait of everyday life under totalitarianism. Full of charming performances, youthful spontaneity and a rock’n’roll soundtrack, Black Peter helped launch the internationally acclaimed Czechoslovak New Wave. Available on both Blu-Ray and DVD formats, Black Peter includes all-new special features including part one of an archival film-by-film interview with Miloš Forman, newly edited for this release with never-before-seen footage; audio commentary by film historian Michael Brooke, a filmed interview with actor Pavla Martínková and a booklet with new essay on the film by Jonathan Owen.
