Film Score for “In The Shadow Of The Pines” by Anne Koizumi

I had the honour and privilege of composing an original score for this beautiful animated short doc by Anne Koizumi. The story is one that is personally tied to Anne, but the film’s themes of shame, guilt, regret, loss, and love are universally relatable and is deeply moving. To me, it reminded me of how racism and classism felt as a kid, but we don’t yet have the tools or vocabulary to understand these until later on when we’re adults. You can stream the full film on CBC Gem and YouTube.
