Marco Beltrami is currently scoring upcoming Netflix drama THEY KILLED MY FATHER: A DAUGHTER OF CAMBODIA REMEMBERS. The movie was directed by Angelina Jolie and is based on a 2000 non-fiction book written by Loung Ung, a Cambodian author and survivor of the Pol Pot regime. It is a personal account of her experiences during the Khmer Rouge years.

According to the composer: "It’s heavy. Heavy. I think [this movie] has the potential to be very interesting. It’s told from a Cambodian girl’s point of view [in 1975]. I think it’s important because the only other movie that really explores this to any degree was The Killing Fields, and that was from a murderer’s perspective. I think it’s going to be a very important movie."

The movie is expected to premiere later this year but no specific release date has been announced so far.

Looks stunning. I'm a huge fan of Jolie as a director, I think she's enormously underrated. I especially loved BY THE SEA, which was clearly intensely personal and possibly the most willfully uncommercial film I've seen in years, which took guts. This looks similarly uncompromising.

Another screening of the movie will take place during Toronto International Film Festival next month. No specific date announced yet....

"Oscar-winning cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle (Slumdog Millionaire) makes a major contribution to the film, and composer Marco Beltrami has contributed a haunting score."

How is The Killing Fields told by a murderers point of view? It's a damn British movie-a biography no less- told from the reporters and Pran's POV. Fuck Angelina Jolie. A Director- shiiit! She is a Self-serving freak who probably just learned about Cambodia when she adopted her kids.
Why not a real movie about HOPE in Cambodia!

The whole 97-minute score can be heard on Netflix’s For Your Consideration website. There’s around 50 minutes of material that’s somewhat worthwhile but I can see why it hasn’t been released. It’s a very quiet and slow-moving score with many cues where nothing happens besides some unsettling droning.

An Academy promo went for $400 on eBay.

Yes... at least there are PRESSED promo CDs... wish they had been edited better... but still... even though it is a very quiet score, there could be a fine 35-40 minute album made out of that... not everything needs to be 80 minutes long...
