The upcoming Amazon Studios feature, Troupe Zero, directed by Bert & Bertie, will be the closing night premiere at this year’s Sundance Festival – with composer Rob Lord and Bert & Bertie in attendance for a Q&A. Rob has collaborated with the directors on all their films to date, including their last feature, Dance Camp.
Set in rural 1977 Georgia, the film centres on a misfit girl who dreams of life in outer space. When a national competition offers her a chance at her dream, to be recorded on NASA’s Golden Record, she recruits a makeshift troupe of Birdie Scouts, forging friendships that last a lifetime and beyond.
The film stars Allison Janney, Viola Davis, McKenna Grace and Mike Epps. Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild) wrote the screenplay. Todd Black (Fences, The Pursuit of Happyness, The Equalizer) is producing.
