Jed Kurzel is an award-winning composer and musician. His feature film debut for the critically-acclaimed Australian movie SNOWTOWN was named Feature Film Score of the Year at Australia’s 2011 Screen Music Awards and he has since gone on to score feature films including: THE BABADOOK (Dir: Jennifer Kent), which William Friedkin, director of THE EXORCIST, described as the most “terrifying film” he had ever seen; SLOW WEST (Dir: John Maclean), which won Jed his second Screen Music Award for Feature Film Score of the Year; and MACBETH (Dir: Justin Kurzel), starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, which premiered in competition at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Before shifting his focus to composing, Jed was best known as the frontman and songwriter for Australian duo The Mess Hall. Their 2006 album DEVIL’S ELBOW was awarded the prestigious 2007 Australian Music Prize.


Two young brothers are on the run with their father, Malik Kahn (Ahmed), an ex-Marine, who is trying to protect them from an inhuman threat. The boys are faced with leaving their childhood behind as they face a new reality that is surrounded by danger.
