Zivjeli! To Life! A record of Soundstage Canada's participation in the 1981 Zagreb Biennale, considered to be one of the most important international festivals of "new" music. The film follows the small group of Canadian singers, dancers and musicians from their first rehearsal to their final performance. Interviews with the performers and footage of them learning and sharing musical skills with Yugoslavian musicians, folkdancers and school children illustrate how music spans language barriers and is an ideal vehicle for cultural exchange.
