International Premiere of At Home with the Horses at Hot Docs 2018
"These two films are the reason we hold documentary film festivals".
Wow. What an honour it was to hear the wonderful filmmaker and Hot Docs programmer Aisha Jamal say this as she presented At Home with the Horses by Dima Alansari and Eric Sanderson, film score by yours truly, and the film that followed (Harvest Moon) at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival! We had three full-house screenings at TIFF LightBox and Scotia, and couldn't have asked for a better International Premiere at such an important festival.
Thank you HotDocs, thank you Toronto, and thank you Eric and Dima for choosing me as your composer for your beautiful and poetic film.
