||Solarmax (2000)||Nigel Westlake||40 min, 14 sec.|
Solarmax is a 40-minute IMAX film that tells the story of humankind's struggle to understand the sun. The film looks at the sun from its fiery beginning to the present day and our continued quest to understand this magnificent star.
Australian composer Nigel Westlake has written an astonishing soundtrack. Westlake, best known for his score to Babe (winner of the Australian Film Critics' Circle Award for best original Music) and its sequel Babe: Pig in the City, has written two previous soundtracks to IMAX movies - Antarctica and Imagine. Solarmax has been hailed as "[Westlake's] most impressive score to date."
