The Revisionaries

dir. Scott Thurman

 a-tangled-tale
The Revisionaries is the critically acclaimed doc profiling the Texas school board’s right wing and their attempt to steer the agenda for schoolchildren across America (alongside the battle being waged against their effort). It’s an insider look at the evolution/intelligent design debate that plays more like a thriller than a boardroom drama.

 

My score is based around banjo, chamber orchestra, and a bassoon heavy wind quintet (that provides the ensemble for the boardroom tangos).

 
It premiered at the Tribeca Festival where it took home a special jury prize, later garnering a prestigious DuPont Columbia Award.
