MPSE Presents:

The Sound of The Fifth Element
Screening and Q&A

Darryl F. Zanuck Theater
Fox Studio Lot

In early 1997, the landscape of theatrical sci fi films was relatively stark.  But coming hot on the heels of Léon: The Professional, Director Luc Besson envisioned a wholly imaginative and kinetic universe that left audiences craving more.  Combining elements of cyberpunk, space travel, sci-fi action, deep lore and original music, The Fifth Element was truly a landmark achievement.

Come relive the magic with a full theatrical screening of the film, followed by a deep dive into the post production sound work by Supervising Sound Editor Mark Mangini, MPSE and more members of the post production team!

Q&A Panelists:

  • Mark Mangini, MPSE, Supervising Sound Editor
  • John Fasal, Sound Designer
  • Ellen Heuer, Foley Artist
  • John Amicarella, Producer
  • Sylvie Landra, Picture Editor
  • Ron Bartlett, Re-Recording Mixer
