I am very pleased to announce a new film I soundtracked, Yuval Adler’s debut feature, “Betlehem“. This is my most electronic soundtrack to date: harsh electronic noises blended with soft pads and orchestral arrangements. This soundtrack is somehow in contradiction with the tone and atmosphere of the film, which could be described as “Middle-Eastern with a raw touch”. “Bethlehem” tells the story of the complex relationship between an Israeli Secret Service officer and his teenage Palestinian informant, bouncing back and forth between conflicting points of view.
Bethlehem is turning out be the Israeli film to watch in 2013: it is the winner of the Venice Days section in the Venice Film Festival, the winner at the Haifa film festival (best movie and best first actor) and the big winner in the Israel Academy Awards (the “Ofir” award), sweeping the best movie, best director, best leading actor, best script, best editing and best casting categories. Yeah!!
Here’s a Sample:
Director: Yuval Adler
Cast: Tsahi Halevi, Sahdi Marei, Haitham Omari
Produced by: Pie films
