Song from the Forest
Production: GER 2013
Song From The Forest documents the life of the US citizen Louis Sarno who has lived with the Bayaka Pygmies in the Central African jungle for the past 25 years. When Louis leaves with his son by his Bayaka wife Samedi for a journey to New York City, his seemingly utopian world goes off kilter. In a moving epic, Michael Obert sensitively draws the portrait of an exceptional person between two cultures, between giant forest trees and skyscrapers.
