EFM MARKET SCREENING ‘Zuzana Ruzickova: Music Is Life’
PRESENTED BY EUROARTS INTERNATIONAL
This is the dark and triumphant story of Zuzana Ruzickova told by herself about how she became a world-famous harpsichordist and interpreter of Bach under the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia. As she reveals her life of hope and fear, the little-known story of Czechoslovakia emerges, from the promise of 1930s democracy to the Nazi invasion, followed by the grinding brutality of forty years of Soviet occupation.
Thanks to a cooperation between Avant Première and EFM European Film Market, this performing arts film production is presented at the EFM. An EFM badge/accreditation is necessary to access this screening.
