"Zuzana: Music is Life" is the dark and triumphant documentary about Zuzana Ruzickova (1927-2017), telling us the remarkable story 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's life story is exceptional 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 political and religious persecution while becoming an international concert and competition sensation.

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.

As she shares her story, Zuzana transcends the personal aspects in a deeply affecting look at the redemptive power of art during the Czech Republic's turbulent 20th century. Zuzana Ruzickova is the only person to record the entire keyboard works of Bach, which he composed exclusively for harpsichord.
