The Screen Guide

A film about Hephzibah Menuhin, the celebrated concert pianist and human rights worker. A child prodigy like her brother Yehudi, the violinist, Hephzibah toured the world, giving concerts from an early age. In 1938 Hephzibah and Yehudi married Australian brother and sister, Lindsay and Nola Nicholas. Hephzibah moved from California to live on a remote sheep station in the western district of Victoria. After the Second World War, when giving a concert in Prague, Hephzibah visited the notorious Theresienstadt concentration camp. She realised she could no longer live a privileged life. Her marriage began to disintegrate and she fell in love with Viennese sociologist, Richard Hauser. Together they established a Centre for Human Rights and set out to 'save the world'.
