Followed by a Q & A With:
NYFF Artist Academy conversation on sound design and music for independent films using MUDBOUND as a case study with:
Composer: Tamar-kali
Music Supervisor: Nancy Allen
Sound Designer/Mixer: Damian Volpe
Mixer: Rob Fernandez
Dialog Supervisor: Tony Martinez
Set in the rural American South during World War II, Dee Rees' MUDBOUND is an epic story of two families pitted against one another by a ruthless social hierarchy, yet bound together by the shared farmland of the Mississippi Delta.

MUDBOUND follows the McAllan family, newly transplanted from the quiet civility of
Memphis and unprepared for the harsh demands of farming. Despite the grandiose
dreams of Henry (Jason Clarke), his wife Laura (Carey Mulligan) struggles to keep the
faith in her husband's losing venture. Meanwhile, Hap and Florence Jackson (Rob
Morgan, Mary J. Blige) — sharecroppers who have worked the land for generations —
struggle bravely to build a small dream of their own despite the rigidly enforced social barriers they face.

The war upends both families' plans as their returning loved ones, Jamie McAllan
(Garrett Hedlund) and Ronsel Jackson (Jason Mitchell), forge a fast but uneasy
friendship that challenges the brutal realities of the Jim Crow South in which they live.

MUDBOUND is written for the screen by Virgil Williams and Dee Rees and directed by
Rees. Based on the novel by Hillary Jordan.

Director Marina Zenovich
Emmy award-winning director Marina Zenovich’s (“Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired”) Water & Power: A California Heist, a National Geographic documentary film executive-produced by Academy Award winner Alex Gibney and produced by Jigsaw Productions, unfolds like a real-life version of the 1974 film noir “Chinatown,” uncovering the ruthless exploits of California’s notorious water barons, who profit off the state’s resources while everyday citizens endure a debilitating water crisis. In the midst of a historic drought that has left many residents without access to safe drinking water, this film peels back the layers of California’s history of water manipulations and examines pivotal events that now jeopardize the state’s groundwater reserves, putting at risk the future of its fertile farmlands — which provide nearly half the country’s fruits, nuts and vegetables.

The real-life story of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed in the film by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown.
