composed music for documentary directed by Christoph Gelfand.

Chasing Buckner tells the story of Bill Buckner, a great baseball player known unfairly for his error during the 1986 World Series between the Mets and the Red Sox. During the game, Buckner allowed a ground ball to roll through his legs and allow the winning run to score for the Mets. Up until 2004, when the Red Sox finally won a World Series after 86 years of futility, Buckner was a scapegoat for many fans.

After years of coping with both the Red Sox championship drought and his own grudge against his self-created nemesis, the Benchwarmer, the filmmaker finds himself more open to change as the Red Sox arise victorious in the 2004 World Series. He aims to vindicate Buckner and prove that a good man and a great ballplayer have been treated unfairly because of one mistake.
