Songs of Earth

26th TIDF: Greek Premiere

Α majestic symphony for the big screen, an audio-visual composition of the earth’s primordial forces with our camera taking you from inside nature’s smallest components to outside the wild panoramas. The filmmaker's father (85) is our guide. Bringing us through Norway’s most scenic valley, he grew up in and where generations have been living alongside nature to survive. The sounds of the earth harmonize together to make music in this breathtaking journey.
