We are very pleased that Zuzana will be the opening film at the Aspen Film Festival, 3-8 October, where the screening will take place at the Wheeler Opera House. On October 4 we'll be part of a panel discussion on bringing women forward to a new generation, in film.  

Zuzana: Music is Life will be in the Competition Section at the Golden Prague Film Festival this September...

We are thrilled to announce that ZUZANA: MUSIC IS LIFE is being distributed by EuroArts, one of the world's leading independent producers of classical music programs for TV and DVD. North American rights remain available.
