Oscar® Scores: The Artist (PG) + ScreenTalk with Ludovic Bource

The eighth in our series, curated by Academy Award nominee Gary Yershon, in which composers recall the creation of an Oscar-nominated score.

At the height of his fame, suave silent film star George Valentin gives a young dancer a Hollywood break. But sound soon takes over the industry and, whilst his young protégé adapts to the talkies, Valentin is left behind.

Composer Ludovic Bource was awarded an Academy Award for his incredible score to this silent film, rich with allusions to early cinematic history. We’re delighted to be joined for a ScreenTalk with him after the screening, hosted by Gary Yershon.
