International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) closes its 45th edition on Saturday 6 February with a screening of The Childhood of a Leader. It promises to be a spectacular musical finale: the film music will be played live during the screening of the film in de Doelen by Codarts Symphony Orchestra. The music is composed and produced by Scott Walker, and co produced, recorded and mixed by Peter Walsh. The orchestra will be conducted by Mark Warman and has a special line-up just for this event. Like last year, following the screening of the film, the festival will close in style with the Closing Night by Warsteiner.
