Veteran Hollywood sound editor Midge Costin explores cinema’s secret sauce: the power of sound. While directors, actors and cinematographers get the bulk of the credit, what we hear is as important as what we see, and Costin introduces us to unsung heroes—Walter Murch, Ben Burtt and Gary Rydstrom–and the greats who appreciate their work, including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Sofia Coppola and Ryan Coogler. Followed by a conversation with the legendary sound designer Skip Lievsay, nominated for Oscars for ROMA, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, TRUE GRIT and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, and winner for GRAVITY. (U.S., 2019, 95m).
