'Convergence: Courage in a Crisis' Released on Netflix
‘Convergence: Courage in a Crisis’ is released today, 12th October, globally on Netflix. Patrick Jonsson composed the original score for the Grain Media documentary.
Maggie Rodford and Ciara Elwis were the music supervisors and Nick Taylor recorded and mixed the score in Air-Edel Studio 1.
“A collaboration that spans eight countries and 9 individual stories, Convergence reveals the power of compassion and community in the face of a crisis. Beginning at the onset of the pandemic, the documentary follows everyday citizens across the globe as they rise to the challenges of this upheaval in extraordinary ways – from a Syrian refugee fighting the UK government to include hospital cleaners and porters in bereavement pay to a doctor committed to serving Miami’s homeless community. But as this generation defining crisis begins to unmask deep-rooted flaws and inequities worldwide, their diverse journeys tell a more unified narrative about our common humanity and how, by coming together, great change can emerge from chaos.”
Directed by Orlando von Einsiedel alongside 10 co-directors – Amber Fares, Hassan Akkad, Juhi Sharma, Mauricio Monteiro Filho, Sara Khaki, Mohammad Reza Eyni, Lali Houghton, Guillermo Galdos, Wenhua Lin and Lieven Corthouts.
Patrick’s soundtrack will be released on Air-Edel Records.
