Give Us This Day is a cinéma vérité film, documenting the lives of local residents and police officers in East St Louis, Illinois, which, in 2017, had the highest homicide rate per capita in the world.
Aurelia was asked to provide all aspects of sound production for the film and one of the most challenging was the reconstruction of various areas of the city, especially the ghettos. To do this, we gained access to various areas of Skid Row, Los Angeles and recorded 3D sound ambiences over 2 days, which gave us everything we needed to recreate the world. Added sound design and music composition brought the production to completion.
