Nick Rowland is a film and TV director.
We have two guests for you on this latest episode of Soundtracking in the shape of director Nick Rowland and musician Benjamin Power - aka Blanck Mass. The pair have collaborated on Nick's debut feature, Calm With Horses, a visceral crime drama set in the wild west of Ireland starring Cosmo Jarvis and Barry Keoghan. It is a remarkably accomplished piece of film making, which also marks Ben's first extended foray into the world of scoring. As an album, it very much stands up in its own right too.

To listen to the interview, click on the ► icon on the right, just above the picture An interview with Nick Rowland, recorded shortly after the screening of his feature directorial debut, Calm With Horses, presented in the First Feature Competition strand of the 2019 BFI London Film Festival. The director talks with us about immersing himself in the landscape of the West of Ireland, where the film was shot and where it is based. He also talks about central themes of predestination and how he reflected the character study of the script (written by Joe Murtagh) by constructing a cinematic language, and more. Calm With Horses: In darkest rural Ireland, ex-boxer Douglas ‘Arm’ Armstrong has become the feared enforcer for the drug-dealing Devers family, whilst also trying to be a good father to his autistic five-year-old son, Jack. Torn between these two families, Arm’s loyalties are truly tested when he is asked to kill for the first time. To discover more about the film, click here.
