Ebert said of the experience, "This project was a dream - an open space to play in but also space to listen to the elements - wind, water, rain, sun, are the story's other characters to me. I knew I had quite a task ahead of me: to at once allow the elements to sing and to give Redford a voice with which to, once in a while, respond."
Starring Academy Award winner Robert Redford, All Is Lost is an open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience. The film premiered to great accolades at the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival and will be released in the United States on Friday, October 18, 2013.
Musically, Ebert lends his unique musical perspective to create a body of work that echoes and adds to the intensity of the film as the viewer finds an unnamed man (Redford) deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean. He wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm and soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.
