September 27, 2017 - We are very sad to share the news that the courageous, defiant, sharp-witted Zuzana Ruzickova is no longer with us. Her musical legacy is forever.
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.
