What makes a score unforgettable? SCORE: A Film Music Documentary, will tell you. The film shows how painstaking the process of writing any score, let alone a memorable one, can be, and features interviews with many of the world’s finest film score composers, including John Williams (Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones), Danny Elman (Batman, Spider-Man) and Hans Zimmer (Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Pirates of the Caribbean).

As you’re reading this, chances are good a snippet of your favorite film score of all time is running through your brain. It’s there for a couple of reasons.

You obviously love the film it came from. But here’s another reason: That score was a work of art, music so compelling and beautiful it instantly resonates and implants itself, even as it helps the film tell its story.

Great film score composers from today owe a debt to those who came before them, and several receive their just accolades here: Alex North (A Streetcar Named Desire), Bernard Herrmann (Psycho) and Ennio Morricone (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly).

“Film music,” says SCORE director Matt Schrader, “speaks to us in a language we can understand, but few of us can speak.”

A person who can speak that language, Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Principal Pops conductor Bob Bernhardt, will introduce the film.
