The Sound of Inglorious Basterds

Director Quentin Tarantin's "spaghetti western but with World War II iconography" sets the stage for a stellar soundscape produced by his talented sound team. In this sound for film profile we talk with Sound Re-Recording Mixer Michael Minkler, Sound Re-Recording Mixer Tony Lamberti, and Sound Designer Ann Scibelli. A basterd's work is never done.


In Nazi occupied France, young Jewish refugee Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the slaughter of her family by Colonel Hans Landa. Narrowly escaping with her life, she plots her revenge several years later when German war hero Fredrick Zoller takes a rapid interest in her and arranges an illustrious movie premiere at the theater she now runs. With the promise of every major Nazi officer in attendance, the event catches the attention of the "Basterds", a group of Jewish-American guerilla soldiers led by the ruthless Lt. Aldo Raine. As the relentless executioners advance and the conspiring young girl's plans are set in motion, their paths will cross for a fateful evening that will shake the very annals of history.
