UKJF: Zuzana: Music is Life

Cinema

Directed by Harriet Getzels, Peter Getzels | 2017 | Czech Republic, USA | English | 83mins

90-year-old Zuzana Ruzickova survived three concentration camps, including Auschwitz, and decades-long oppression and harassment under the totalitarian regime in her native Czech Republic to become a world-famous harpsichordist and the only musician to ever record all the keyboard works of Bach. Here she speaks candidly about her miraculous survival, the struggle to get back to normal life after liberation, her resistance to communism and, most importantly, her endless, unconditional love for life – and music.

“A film that tells the story of 20th-century Czech history and conveys a sense of the harpsichord as a living instrument [...] enough to make anyone put down a book, and listen” ― The Washington Post

Official Selection - Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival 2017
