Songs of Earth


A majestic symphony for the big screen, an audio-visual composition of the earth’s primordial forces. The camera takes us from inside nature’s smallest components to outside the wildest panoramas. The filmmaker’s 85-year-old father is our guide through Norway’s most scenic valley, where he grew up and where generations have survived alongside nature. The sounds of the earth harmonise to make music.
