    More Knowledge, More Power, More Bear!

    Emmy® Award-winning composer Bear McCreary wrote the original score for Unrest, his first for a documentary! You’ve heard his work in Battlestar Galactica, Outlander, The Walking Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, and many more.

    “When I saw an early cut of Unrest, I knew immediately I wanted to be involved. The film tackles complex social and medical issues, and yet I was inspired by Jen’s distinctly personal narrative voice,” says Bear. “Oh, and I got to write for and orchestrate the sounds of an MRI machine!”
