JAILBIRD/LA LUNGA CORSA (2023) – 2022 Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival and 2022 Turin Film Festival (Official Selection)
DIRECTED BY ANDREA MAGNANI
ORIGINAL SCORE BY FABRIZIO MANCINELLI
As the son of two inmates Hyacinth was always more at home in prison than in the outside world, until he took part in a foot race that promised to change his life.
Statement from director Andrea Magnani
When I asked Fabrizio Mancinelli to compose the original score for Jailbird, I shared with him my idea of creating something special, unusual and even experimental as the musical voice for this film.
Our movie didn’t need a lot of music, but it clearly needed a ‘trademark’. We had many back and forth between Italy and Los Angeles (where Fabrizio works) and after much fine tuning here we are, presenting the result of our first (of hopefully many more to come) collaborations.
