Double win at Wildscreen Festival 2022

Bristol/Vienna. Thursday evening, the British nature-film festival Wildscreen has announced the winners of the 2022 Panda Awards. The Austrian based Terra Mater Studios were awarded twice for one of their latest feature films.

“The Bastard King”, a Terra Mater Studios & Bonne Pioche Télévision & Shibumi Films co-production, won the Panda Award in the category Music and it received a special jury award – the Panda in the Pocket to recognise outstanding storytelling, narration, music, editing and color-grading – consistent with a singular vision.

“The Bastard King” chronicles the life of a lion from cub to adulthood,as he battles against the unimaginable enemy that is ravaging his world. The film was set to music by the French musicians Laurent Garnier and Pierre Lefeuvre, alias Saycet. The union of these two electronic forces led to an outstanding soundtrack for “The Bastard King”. Lots of contrasts and changes of rhythm reflect the dramatic life of this king of the savannah.

Under the French title “Le Roi Batard”, the full soundtrack is available to download from all major music streaming providers.
