Alternating between the urban jungle of Manhattan and the rain-forest of Africa with metronomic aplomb, award-winning German journalist and author Michael Obert effects an belated, auspicious transition to film-making with Song From the Forest.
By documenting Sarno's worldview, Song From the Forest compellingly foregrounds the ephemeral nature of all culture. Additionally, by demonstrating the intrinsically beautiful quality of the Bayaka's ways, it merges with his mission.
A strikingly poetic documentary that illustrates the push and pull of life's opposing forces.
This nonjudgmental documentary moves between New York City and the rain forests of the Central African Republic, where Mr. Sarno primarily lives. Both places are tugs of war between abundance and lack.
Song is filled with great beauty and moments of everyday life that show that director Michael Obert has a fine sense of the power of the quotidian ...
A mesmerizing glimpse into Sarno's search for a sub-Saharan Walden and the implications of that choice.
An immersive delight.
Song from the Forest is a beautiful portrait of an American who has found his calling in Africa, elevated by director Michael Obert's grasp of the awkward tensions that result from such a mission.
