More Earth Will Fall is a feature-length documentary that tells an intimate story of daily life for a family in Rio’s biggest favela, Roçinha. as they navigate the stresses of gang violence and government neglect in their neighbourhood whilst looking for better life.
The score was made in the same vein as the film was shot – making only a very subtle imprint over how the story is told and is interpreted so the viewer can experience the intimacies in the footage that Co-Directors Sam Leibmann and Lee McKarkiel were able to capture.
The score features a warm electronic sound that mirrors Roçinha’s calm yet brittle atmosphere and is entwined with field recordings from the surrounding areas.
The film tours festivals this year.
