Irish-born documentarist David Kinsella takes these shocking statistics as the basis of Killing Girls, the third chapter of his documentary cycle "The Children of Perestroika". The film takes us to the Russian city of St. Petersburg where an abortion clinic specializes in late term teenage abortions. Young girls arrive at the clinic through the back door, sometimes with their mother or a friend. But all of them have to go through it alone...
Though the topic of the documentary is grim, composer Frank Ilfman (Big Bad Wolves, Abulele, Sensoria) was tasked with creating beautiful music that would make the audience connect with the women on screen. From the opening track of the main theme to the haunting Hebrew prayer E'munah, the whole score was designed to be as unified as possible with even director David Kinsella thinking that the individual cues should be memorable enough to warrant their own soundtrack. The actual release seven years after the film's release - but it was well worth the wait.
The CD comes with an 8-page booklet with liner notes by Gergely Hubai, based on an original interview with Frank Ilfman as well as a personal note from director David Kinsella.
