Anna Drubich (Barbarian, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Fear Street Part 3: 1666) & Jongnic Bontemps (Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, 4400, My Name Is Pauli Murray, Redfall) have teamed up to score the upcoming documentary The Space Race. The film is directed by Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (The Redeem Team) & Lisa Cortés (Little Richard: I Am Everything, All In: The Fight for Democracy) and explores the experiences of the first Black astronauts. The movie features interviews with Ed Dwight, Charles Bolden, Guion Bluford & Victor Glover and spotlights the oft-omitted racial injustice narratives and present-day realities of these pioneers. Cortés & Hurtado de Mendoza are also producing the National Geographic Documentary Films production with Keero Birla, Alexandra Bowen, Aly Parker, as well as Mark Monroe (UFO, The Dissident). Frank Marshall (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Sixth Sense) serves as an executive producer. The Space Race is premiering today at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival and is expected to be released later this year.

Drubich’s other upcoming projects include Len Wiseman’s Ballerina (co-scored with Marco Beltrami). Bontemps has recently scored Steven Caple Jr.’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which just opened in theaters this past weekend and the horror thriller Jagged Mind, which will debut this Thursday, June 15 on Hulu.
