'A modern-day story about finding love against all odds; The Sun Is Also a Star explores whether our lives are determined by fate or the random events of the universe.' The Sun Is Also a Star is a 2019 American teen drama film directed by Ry Russo-Young and written by Tracy Oliver, based on the young adult novel of the same name by Nicola Yoon. The film follows a young couple who fall in love, while one of their families faces deportation. The soundtrack is composed by Herdis Stefánsdóttir & produced by Dustin O'Halloran (A Winged Victory for the Sullen). Herdís Stefánsdóttir graduated with a M.A. degree in film scoring from New York University in 2017. Since graduation she has scored two American feature films and a few short films. Herdís interned for the Oscar nominated composer Jóhann Jóhannsson in Berlin while he was working on the film Arrival (2016) and she has scored numerous short films that have premiered at top-tier festivals around the world like Berlinale, TIFF, Sundance and Palm Springs International Film Festival. Herdís formed her electro-pop duet East of My Youth in 2015. East of My Youth's music has been described as sensual and addictive as getting your tongue frozen to a glacier of pure honey. The duo has showcased at SxSW, Eurosonic Noorderslag, KEXP, Sonar Reykjavík and Iceland Airwaves.
