Alicia Keys debuts “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete” at Sundance
Alicia Keys attended the Sundance Film Festival to support her first film as executive producer and composer, ”The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,” which premiered Friday. Directed by George Tillman, Jr., the film tells the story of two young boys who survive the streets of Brooklyn on their own. The film stars Anthony Mackie, Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks.
“It’s great because I love being part of bringing stories that you wouldn’t often hear to the world,” she said. “The fact that it was in my hometown – New York – that felt really good. The most important thing for me is that it looked and was so authentic.”
As the film’s composer, Keys was deeply involved in setting the tone of the film.
“I think it really expanded me because it’s a beautiful collaborative process,” she said. “Being able to collaborate with (director) George (Tillman, Jr.), and he has such a cool feeling about music and is specific about how it related to each scene, and that was really interesting. There were some pieces that came really naturally to me and others that I had to kind of think more of how does that feel, what should that feel like?”
