Original score from the 2021 drama television film directed by Stanley Kolk, starring Teun Luijkx, Fabian Jansen and Lisa Smit, produced by Family Affair Films and released by Evangelische Omroep (Netherlands).
THE STORY: In the shadow of a church two men are assaulted at night. Random violence? A gay bashing? A filmmaker tries to uncover what really happened. Just how many issues remain undisclosed in this religious community?
THE SCORE: “This film was very intense and beautiful to work on. The subject matter is a very current topic, about accepting people for who they are and accepting yourself for who you are. This in combination with the religious background of the character and the violent crime in the beginning of the film formed my score. I recomposed two hymns/psalms that were used in the film and took these melodies as the lead motives of my score. And because I wanted the music to be both intimate and aggressive where it should be, I used a string quintet as the main colour to play both the serene parts where you can hear the individual instrument and the aggression of the bows attacking the strings.” – Matthijs Kieboom
