Directed by Zdeněk Jiráský
Slovakia, Czech Republic / English and Slovak with English subtitles / 2014
A highly original, visually stunning and emotionally devastating film that celebrates the musicians whose lives were lost in the Holocaust.
Czech director Zdeněk Jiráský had planned his film to be a documentary but, through the amassing of material, ended up with a highly original drama. The level of invention and intensity is unforgettable and brings home the power of cinema.
