Todd Phillips’ Joker, winner of Best Actor & Best Original Score at the Academy Awards, will be screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score for the first time.
Central to the emotional journey taken by Joaquin Phoenix’s character, Arthur Fleck, is Guðnadóttir’s beautifully haunting, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Academy Award-winning score. The fusion of looming industrial soundscapes with raw, emotive string-led melodies – led by a lone cello – creates a melancholic shroud pinpricked with moments of hope. This unfolds gradually to reach a fever pitch of disquieting tension.
This extraordinary music will be brought to life by a full orchestra to create a vivid, visceral and entirely new Joker viewing experience. Performed live, Guðnadóttir’s inimitable score illuminates further the emotional weight, texture and atmosphere of Phoenix’s captivating portrayal.
