Richter, Waltz with Bashir (with film)

A rare screening of Waltz with Bashir accompanied by its award-winning soundtrack live.

Max Richter's atmospheric, award-winning soundtrack is performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra with the composer in a London première. Composer, pianist, producer, remixer and collaborator extraordinaire Max Richter has worked across multiple disciplines, including with such luminaries as Tilda Swinton, Wayne McGregor and Robert Wyatt. 

Waltz with Bashir is a powerful and affecting hybrid of animation and documentary that sees an Israeli soldier reflecting on his experiences in the 1982 Lebanon War. It was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar and has won a number of awards including a Golden Globe.
