THE MASTER OF YORK (2017) - Comedy

Written & directed by Kieron Quirke

An Anglo-Norman sex comedy set in the Jewish community of 12th- century York & starring Gwyneth Keyworth (Game of Thrones, Misfits) & Elliot Levey (The Queen, Philomena, MI-5).

 

The brief was to support the medieval-yet-modern aesthetic & tone of the film, resulting in a quirky score with layers of rustic hand percussion, violin, recorders, flute and featuring tenor Benjamin Seifert.

The film premiered at the 21st UK International Jewish Film Festival in 2017 and received a nomination for Best Score at the King of Kings Festival, Tel Aviv in 2019.
