Christopher Bear & Daniel Rossen (of the indie rock band Grizzly Bear) have teamed up to score the upcoming drama Past Lives. The film is written and directed by Celine Song and stars Greta Lee, Teo Yoo and John Magaro. The movie follows two deeply connected childhood friends whose relationship ended abruptly when one of their families emigrated from South Korea to Canada as they reunite in New York two decades later and confront notions of destiny and love. Killer Films’ Christine Vachon (Carol, Far from Heaven) & Pamela Koffler (Still Alice, One Hour Photo) are producing the A24 production with David Hinojosa (First Reformed, Zola). Bear has previously scored three seasons of HBO’s High Maintenance, the short Shako Mako, the documentary Soul of Soho and an episode of AppleTV+’s docuseries HomePast Lives will premiere this weekend at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival and is expected to be released in theaters later this year by A24.

Bear’s other recent scoring projects include Carter Smith’s horror thriller Swallowed, which premiered at various genre film festivals last year and will be released in select theaters and on VOD on February 14 by Momentum Pictures.
