SOS! Oscar Winning Composer of “Joker,” Hildur Guðnadóttir, Frantic After Rare Electronic Violin Stolen from her Home


Hildur Guðnadóttir, the Oscar winning composer of “Joker,” plus “Tar,” and “Women Talking,” is frantic. She says on Twitter that someone broker into her home and stole her one of a kind instrument, what looks like an electronic violin or cello. (She’s an award winning cellist.) This happened in Berlin in the last couple of days. This isn’t funny– she’s working on the score for the “Joker” sequel with Lady Gaga. Someone call Batman immediately!
