Max Richter Announces Short Film ‘On The Nature Of Daylight’, Starring Elisabeth Moss

It arrives in anticipation of the reissue of Max Richter’s pioneering work ‘The Blue Notebooks’, originally released in 2004.

Max Richter has released a short film entitled On the Nature of Daylight ahead of the reissue of his pioneering work The Blue Notebooks, originally released in 2004, and now slated for a re-release featuring new bonus tracks as part of a 'Super Deluxe' edition, due out June 29th via Deutsche Grammophon. 

Filmed in Toronto in March of 2018 and starring Emmy and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss, the six-and-a-half minute short is intended to serve as an accompaniment to The Blue Notebooks and is available to stream below. Richter describes it as a response to themes raised by his 2004 compositions, calling them “a meditation on violence and its repercussions, inspired both by the Iraq war – which was looming – and my own experiences". He also talks in the reissue’s liner notes of how, as “a very sensitive child, I reacted to the violence around me by internalising everything. I closed all the shutters, built up walls, became as perfect as I could be.”
