Episode 260: Ferdinando Cito Filomarino On The Music Of Beckett & Ryuichi Sakamoto

Aug 20, 2021, 06:29 PM

Our latest guest on Soundtracking is an Italian screenwriter and director who is absolutely charming company - and super-talented to boot.

Ferdinando Cito Filomarino - or Ferdy for short! - has collaborated multiple times with former guest on this show, Luca Guadagnino, and also brought us a couple of feature films of his own. The latest of these is Beckett, which you can watch now on Netflix. 

Starring John David Washington and Alicia Vikander, Beckett tells the story of a tourist who becomes the subject of a manhunt following an accident while holidaying in Greece. Excitingly, Ferdy's film is scored by none other than Ryuichi Sakamoto - who provides a typically layered soundscape. As always, we'll pepper plenty of his music throughout the conversation.
