Klos, Elmar
▪ 1994

      Czech filmmaker (b. Jan. 26, 1910, Brno, Moravia, Austria-Hungary—d. July 19, 1993, Prague, Czech Republic), collaborated with the Hungarian-born director Jan Kadar on some of the finest motion pictures in the so-called Czech New Wave, most notably The Shop on Main Street, which won the Academy Award for the best foreign film of 1965. Klos studied law at Charles University in Prague and began doing odd jobs in the film industry at the age of 18. At age 25 he established his own studio to write and direct documentaries and educational films; later he joined the state-owned studio in Prague as head of the creative art staff. In 1955 he helped found the Czech motion-picture academy known as FAMU, where he was professor of film history until 1969. Klos worked with Kadar on eight films, including The Hijacking (1952), The Third Wish (1958), The Accused (1964), and Adrift (1969). After the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia, Kadar immigrated to the U.S. Klos remained in Prague but was banned from moviemaking. He worked as a construction engineer until the postcommunist government allowed him to return to FAMU as a teacher in the 1990s.
