Zhu Xiao-Mei: Bach ist stärker als Mao – availabe online until 1st of June

Posted on April 12, 2017

As of today, almost 40.000 people watched our documentary “Zhu Xiao-Mei: Bach ist stärker als Mao” (directed by Paul Smaczny) on Arte Mediathek. This film will be available online until 1st of June.

The documentary tells the story of Zhu Xiao-Mei returning to China as an internationally acclaimed interpreter of Bach’s music, 35 years after leaving her country. The decision to return to China was not easy for her. The wounds of the Cultural Revolution, in which Mao laid waste to the country, laid too deep. Because her family was considered to be “bourgeois” and counterrevolutionary, she became the victim of public denunciations, experienced how musical scores were burned and saw how her teachers were humiliated and driven to suicide.
