Our very own Renderers scored their first feature film, notes to eternity, a documentary on the Israel-Palestine conflict. Their stark music fits the soundscape of the lives and ideas of four renowned critics of Israel: Noam Chomsky, Sara Roy, Norman Finkelstein and Robert Fisk, sharpening perspective on the nature of the issue that transcends historical and cultural lines. The film was screened in last year's New Zealand International Film Festival. Critics described notes to eternity as "an impressive and affecting film, an inspired and inspiring example of world class craft." Director Sarah Cordery and her team have started an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for post-production. You can watch the trailer for the film and support their campaign here.
