The Firemen’s Ball, 1967

In Milos Forman’s satire on Communism set in a small Czechoslovakian town in the 1960s, the local firemen decide to organize a ball, however the proceedings are dogged by difficulty at every step. They plan to organize a beauty pageant at the ball, yet struggle tremendously to find enough pretty contestants. A lottery is planned for later in the evening, but the guests begin stealing the prizes. Then, inevitably, there is a fire in the town… It seems that whatever can go wrong, does go wrong.
Director: Miloš Forman
Music composed by: Karel Mareš
