As a companion piece to our release of Uno Helmersson’s feature film score The Lion Woman, MovieScore Media also releases a digital EP for the documentary Bobbi Jene, in time for the US theatrical release of the film on September 22 (distribution: Oscilloscope Pictures).
Directed by Elvira Lind, the film tells the story of dancer Bobbi Jene Smith. By portraying the dilemmas and inevitable consequences of ambition, the picture deals with a woman’s fight for independence, a woman trying to succeed in the extremely competitive world of dance. As Uno explains: “The film is just vibrating and trembling, and magic – all about being driven by your call, wherever it may take you or what it takes to get there. It gets under your skin. This was my premise when I dug into the making of the music.”
Uno Helmersson was born in the village of Botsmark in Sweden in 1977. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm in 2006 and has since then worked as composer in the international film and television industry. His credits include contributions to the score of the highly acclaimed television series The Bridge and Armadillo, a multiple award-winning documentary about the war in Afghanistan. More recently his work was featured in the Department Q films The Keeper of Lost Causes and The Absent One – these collaborations with Johan Söderqvist and Patrik Andrén have been released by MovieScore Media. His latest release, also issued by the label was is the sport documentary Magnus (2016), detailing the rise of Norwegian chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen.
