Song From the Forest

SongForest 550“A perceptive and utterly gorgeous look at Louis Sarno … first-rate ethnographic storytelling.” –IndieWire

When he was young, a song on the radio lured Louis Sarno from New York to the Central African Republic. Some 25 years later, Sarno had become a member of Bayaka Pygmies and a legend in the world of ethnomusicology. Michael Obert’s unforgettable saga follows Sarno as he brings his Bayaka son from the rainforest, to America. A tale of music, love, culture, paradise at risk, assimilation and unlikely kinships, SONG was winner of Best Feature at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam. (Germany-U.S.-Central African Republic, 2014, 98m)
