“SUPERHEROES ARE BASED ON GREAT PEOPLE, REAL PEOPLE LIKE ALICE HERZ SOMMER” Nicholas Reed, Film Producer
One of the most inspirational, uplifting stories of the year, from Oscar-winning filmmaker Malcolm Clarke.
As the world’s oldest pianist and Holocaust survivor, 109 year-old Alice Herz Sommer shares her views on how to live a long and happy life. She discusses music, laughter and how to remain optimistic come what may. Alice is unequivocal in stating that music preserved her sanity and her life – while bringing hope into the lives of countless others: “Music saved my life and music saves me still.”
The film features beautiful photographs and rare film footage that truly brings Alice’s extraordinary story to life.
