Marta's Dance (2019)  Directed by: Guido Orio

A humbled maid with faded dreams of being a professional ballet dancer meets a young thief who seemingly gives up on his future to survive in a world that looks down on him because of his ethnicity.

Hope for Tomorrow, composed and orchestrated by Jehad Choate, shows the reflective side of this film after exploring broken dreams, and political disenfranchisement, Marta makes a choice. I mixed up hints of “Le Cygne” and the “Star Spangled Banner” for thematic purposes and this leads to the full arrangement of “Le Cygne” as the ending credits theme. 
I thought about why the particular piece of “Le Cygne” was used. Translated to The Swan, it was about the idea of the “swan song”. After research, I found that ancient greeks and romans used to believe that the swan was a mute animal until its final moments of life, where it would sing the most beautiful song and then die. The act of releasing something beautiful into the world before disappearing from it was the inspiration for my cues in tone and arrangement.
