ZUZANA: Music Is Life / Now Or Later
LA Premiere!
Directed by Peter Getzels and Harriet Gordon Getzels
Documentary/USA/2016/83 minutes

ZUZANA: MUSIC IS LIFE is the triumphant story told by Zuzana Ruzickova, now 90, and how she became a world-famous harpsichordist and interpreter of Bach under the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia after surviving three concentration camps during her teenage years. Zuzana Ruzickova's story is remarkable not just because she returned to Czechoslovakia after the war to fulfill her childhood dream of a career in music; but also in how she navigated Communist and anti-Semitic persecution at home, while becoming a tour-de-force in concerts and competitions around the world. After the fall of Communism in 1989, Zuzana and her husband, famed Czech composer Viktor Kalabis, worked tirelessly to bring musical education to people throughout the Czech Republic. They are widely credited with helping create Prague's reputation as a musical city.
