Celluloid Tunes # 44: Music from Documentaries (14th International Edition)

The 3-hour long, epic documentary Human (2015) is currently in Norwegian theatres, featuring a gorgeous score by Armand Amar. This gives us ample opportunity to do what we’ve been wanting to do for a long time: Delve into the expansive world of documentary scores – both classic and personal favourites of a more recent date. For a genre that subscribes to reality and authenticity, it often uses music as a crucial element to tell us something about how it is to be human in this world. It’s a dangerous rhetorical tool, but when used right, it’s spellbinding. These are some examples.

As usual, you can send me feedback at tjhaga@celluloidtunes.no, or comment/suggest your own favourites in the field below. The playlist can be found here.

PS. Celluloid Tunes works currently best in Explorer and Chrome. You might be experiencing issues in other browsers, especially Firefox.
