Jan Tříska is a legendary actor who has portrayed an impressive number of theatre and film characters throughout his career. Not only did he make a name for himself in the Czech Republic, he also broke through in the USA, where he emigrated in 1977. He began acting in theatre as the youngest member of the National Theatre dramatic company. One of Tříska’s first roles in film was the character of Radúz in the poetic drama Radúz and Mahulena. In his American exile, he collaborated with Miloš Forman on Ragtime and The People Vs. Larry Flint. Czech audiences know him well thanks to the role of the uncompromising teacher in Jan Svěrák’s feature debut, The Elementary School, which was nominated for the Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film in 1991. The same nomination went to Ondřej Trojan’s Zelary twelve years later, where Tříska portrayed the role of old Gorčík. Jan Tříska will personally receive the Kristián award for his Contribution to World Cinema.
