Geektown Radio 174: Award-Winning ‘Life Itself’ Composer Federico Jusid, UK TV News & Air Dates!

As the weather begins to turn, what better way to spend your evenings (or break up your commute) than listening to the latest Geektown Radio podcast. This week we have all the usual tv news and UK tv premiere date information, plus we have an exclusive interview with Federico Jusid, the award-winning composer of ‘This Is Us’ creator Dan Fogelman’s new film ‘Life Itself’.

Originally from Argentina, Federico is best known for scoring the Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language film, ‘The Secret in Their Eyes’, for which he won the Best Music award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Argentina. He also recently scored the Spanish drama, ‘Loving Pablo’, starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. In 2016, Federico was recognized as Composer of the Year by the Spanish Music Critics Association and he won five International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) awards for his music on the Spanish historical fiction series, ‘Isabel’ and ‘Carlos, Rey Emperador’. He is currently scoring the new BBC/Netflix animated mini-series adaptation of ‘Watership Down’.

Recently, Federico completed the emotional and moving score for ‘Life Itself’ starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Annette Bening, Mandy Patinkin and Antonio Banderas from ‘This Is Us’ creator Dan Fogelman. The film centres on a couple (Isaac & Wilde) which leads a multigenerational love story spanning both decades and continents, from the streets of New York to the Spanish countryside, and are all connected by a single event.

‘Life Itself’ comes to US cinemas on September 21, and arrives in the UK in January 2019.
