Woodgirls: A Duet for a Dream (Amir Molookpour)

Original score from the 2021 documentary feature film directed by Azadeh Bizargiti, produced by Europe Media Nest.

THE STORY: Two female carpenters are trying to follow their dream and open a carpentry workshop run by women for women.

THE SCORE: “Writing music for documentary films isn’t as easy as one might think. This movie is about two girls who are struggling working as carpenters just because they are females and find themselves in a male dominating society; I chose Geminiano Giacomelli’s aria “Sposa, son disprezzata” (which means “I am wife and I am scorned”) from his opera La Merope to make an emphasis on this issue and based a lot of the cues on this aria’s theme. Although there is some hope at the end of the film, I decided to use some parts of this aria once again as the End Title music.” – Amir Molookpour

THE COMPOSER: Amir Molookpour began to study the traditional Persian music at the age of nine before moving onto a study of Western music as an autodidact, followed by specialization classes with Hassan Riahi, the composer of the last Iranian National Anthem. In 2001 Molookpour moved to Italy to study Musicology at the University of Pavia (in Cremona) continuing to work with the Symphony Orchestra of the Iranian Radio as a composer. He wrote his thesis on the role and functions of music in the religious rituals of the Iranian Zoroastrians. His compositions include a string quartet, Three Lieder on poems of Hermann Hesse, a Requiem on Latin and Persian texts and numerous compositions for solo instruments such as piano, clarinet, and cello. His three film scores so far are all released by MovieScore Media.
