Apartheid Documentary "The Other Man" Premiere - August 10, 2015

 

A while back, I collaborated with a composer who was working on a score for a film "The Other Man", about FW de Klerk, South Africa’s last Apartheid president and the man who unbanned the ANC and released Nelson Mandela.
He needed a few scenes with an exotic charango sound for ambience and I happened to have a charango I purchased in Peru. It's kind of like an Andean mandolin.  
"The Other man" is a documentary that offers fascinating insights into why a man who came from a conservative Afrikaner background, took such a bold step.  This documentary also probes the relationship between De Klerk and Mandela.
You can read more about the film, the director's perspective, and reviewshere http://www.enca.com/south-africa/other-man
 
The film will premiere in South Africa on eENCA News Television. 
International documentary, The Other Man, directed and written by Nicolas Rossier and co-produced with Naashon Zalk, will air on eNCA at the following times:
THURSDAY 30 JULY – 9:15 PM
FRIDAY 31 JULY – 9:15 AM
SATURDAY 1 AUGUST – 1:15 PM
SUNDAY 2 AUGUST – 8:45 PM
MONDAY 3 AUGUST – 2:45 PM
WEDNESDAY 5 AUGUST – 11:15 AM
THURSDAY 6 AUGUST – 10:15 PM

Under Cane Documentary Now on National Geographic - February 5, 2015

I recently wrote some music for a documentary called Under Cane which examines the human cost of sugar harvesting.  

You can watch the film on National Geographic here.

The 14 min film is about Sugarcane harvesters in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua, who have a life expectancy of only 46 years, with many of them dying from chronic kidney disease. Experts think they may have figured out why the workers are being afflicted at such an alarming rate. But the plantation owners have their own ideas about the root cause. Regardless of who's right, the toll on the community has been grief and heartbreak for those suffering from the disease and for their families. 

The film was created by Talking Eyes Media, a non-profit organization that creates powerful media for pressing issues.  Run by writer/producer Julie Winokur and photographer/filmmaker Ed Kashi, it was a privilege to collaborate with superb visual storytellers on such a pressing subject.
