After her award-winning features Hemel Zurich, Sacha Polak's English-language debut Dirty God opened Rotterdam's International Film Festival before being screened at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.

The film tells the story of Jade, a young mother in the prime of her life, who gets severely burned. While her face has been reconstructed, her beauty is lost beneath the scars. Descending a self-destructive path with relationships crumbling, Jade must take drastic action to reclaim her life.
Dirty God is about courage, motherhood and self-acceptance in today's London.


While creating the music for Dirty God, Reinders knew from a very early stage onwards the film needed a synthesizer score:
"We felt the film should have an eclectic choice of music, but the score also needed to represent the type of music the lead characters of the film would listen to. Grabbed by the modular synth virus, I saw it as a 'good excuse' to extensively expand my collection."

"A large part of the score was created on-the-road", he continues. "During half a year, I traveled with my wife (Sacha Polak, director of Dirty God) and our two kids through Europe in our old camper and recorded pieces in the most idyllic places with the most incredible views. At that point, the film still needed to be shot, but I like composing away from the film, creating different vibes and moods and letting the music find its own way to the film later on."
