Redes

A 50-piece orchestra conducted by Angel Gil-Ordóñez performs Silvestre Revueltas’ searing score for the Mexican film masterpiece Redes (1936).

A singular coming together of talents, Redes, commissioned by a progressive Mexican government, was co-written and shot by photographer Paul Strand, with a score by Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas. PostClassical Ensemble, led by Angel Gil-Ordóñez, recently recorded the soundtrack for the release of the restored version of the film for Naxos. Redes focuses on a local fishing community and its battles with big business, labor unions and politics, relating to issues of food insecurity.
