THE FILM

Casa din Copac is an independent feature film directed by Florin Brinza, that premiered at the London International Motion Picture Awards in May 2019. The story deals with the long-term consequeces of domestic abuse and the challenges of breaking the cycle when the victims of such abuse become parents themselves.

THE SCORE

In conveying this emotional contrast, the music follows two distinct stylistic directions: a light, orchestral score illustrating the innocence of childhood and a drone-based, textural score to emphasize the psychological damage of domestic abuse.
