Alex Heffes Interview | Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
Film Music Friday: Alex Heffes on Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
Alex Heffes (PRS) is one of the brightest composing talents to emerge from England in recent years. His scores to Kevin Macdonald’s Oscar winners One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland and Touching the Void brought him to international attention; in 2011, the World Soundtrack Academy named Heffes their Discovery of the Year. For Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, his second collaboration with director Justin Chadwick (The First Grader), Heffes traveled from London to South Africa to capture the spirit of the South African leader and the people that he helped to liberate. We asked Heffes about his journey in this video interview.
Watch the interview on the ASCAP website.
