Before the Rains | Mark Kilian
Adapted from the “Red Roofs” segment of the 2001 Israeli anthology film Yellow Asphalt, this pastoral English-language debut from The Terrorist director Santosh Sivan centers on an affair between an Englishman and his Indian maid set against the backdrop of the fading British Raj of the 1930s.
Born in South Africa and educated in the United States, composer Mark Kilian’s hallmark fusion of sweeping, classical orchestrations with traditional instrumentation fosters a wide array of memorable themes befitting the film’s Merchant Ivory moniker. At times brusquely romantic, elsewhere urgently percussive, it’s a score that bravely captures the unbridled passion of the story’s star-crossed lovers as well as the sweep and majesty of Imperial India.
