In the Tracks of – Special Edition*

Director: Pascale Cuenot
Duration: 92’
Language: French and English
Subtitles: Chinese and English
Categories: Group B (Not suitable for audiences under 13 years of age)

Upon hearing the melody of a classic score, we can’t help but mentally revisit the tearful, touching scenes. Perhaps that’s all because of the memory magic of film scores!

Classic films often make up the collective memories of a generation, yet from contemporary Hollywood to the French New Wave, how do film scores wizards from different generations and of different styles transform moving images into musical themes and make them timeless classics? In this documentary, Oscar-winning composers like Alexandre Desplat (The Shape of Water) and Maurice Jarre (Lawrence of Arabia) will discuss the art of writing the film score.

Through the two masters’ sharing across time and space, audiences will have a glance at how the great classic film scores were inspired and created!
