HESBURGH(scored by Mansour)

one of Entertainment Weekly’s Top Documentaries of 2019.

“[A] thoroughly engaging documentary chronicle of the life and turbulent times of longtime Notre Dame president Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, whose tenure coincided with a particularly pivotal stretch of American history.” - Los Angeles TImes, Michael Rechtshaffen.

“A portrait of a man who can be seen as not merely blameless, but genuinely heroic.” - NY Times, Glenn Kenny.

“Aside from its wondrous use of historical footage and photos, the two best elements of HESBURGH are its narration and musical score. Maurice LaMarche makes the recollections of Hesburgh come alive in compelling fashion, while composer Alex Mansour applies a boisterous jazz score to underscore the fast-paced life and times of an international force of nature.” - Movieguide.
