"When you feel you can go no further consider taking just one more beautiful stride"- Zuzana
Zuzana Gedeon (she/her) is a film director with a bright and intellectually curious mind, and a warm and loving personality. She is driven by a desire to explore unusual worlds, events, and characters, and to walk the unbeaten path. As a professional independent woman, she understands the challenges of trying to keep all the ducks in a row, but she is able to find love and positivity in almost any situation. After loosing her daughter to a rare disease, Zuzana traveled to Kyoto, visited shrines and temples, managed to elbow her way through a line of little kids toward Buddha's nostril in Nara, and squeezed through it. According to local belief that means she will be enlightened. Embracing both her Yang and Yin sides drives her to create films filled with love, acceptance, and understanding, without judgment. While cooped up in 2020 she decided to catch up what directors usually do as kids: run around and make terrible movies to improve her craft. She studied directing, writing, acting, and creating scripts and short films. Her hard work paid off as she received several awards for her work. As a dual citizen with US and EU passports, Zuzana is always looking for new and exciting opportunities to tell stories and she is passionate about using her talents and skills to create a more harmonious and balanced world.
