FILM-lebensbilderAbout Viennese musicians and other masters of the art of living
two films by zurbrügg & hudecek
with Kurt Schaffer and Kurt Girk

We are quite familiar with Viennese music of the 19th century, from the turn of the century up to the second world war. But only little information has been secured about the post war generation that grew up with American jazz and traditional music. A jig-saw puzzle of personal memories and experiences – unique and irretrievable examples of Vienna’s cultural history. A picture of a vanishing culture of life.
