Songs of Earth

Director Margreth Olin sets out to better understand how her aging parents find meaning in their lives by filming them against the seasonal backdrop of the vast Norwegian panoramas where her father grew up. The ambitious meditation that results is at once a gorgeous, finely observed nature documentary, a visual poem, and a soaring portrait of family love, memory and time. Olin's gift is revealing the connective thread that runs through the earth's smallest and grandest expressions of life. The score, by Rebekka Karijord, orchestrates the ancient rhythms beneath it all, from rippling water to cracking ice.
