The natural world doesn't get much more monumental than in Songs of Earth, Norway's submission for this year's Best International Feature Oscar.
Margreth Olin has created a magnificent, existential journey through the mountainous landscapes of Norway, with her 84-year-old father, Jørgen, as both guide and human yardstick.
Jørgen has been exploring Norway’s wilderness all his life. Over four seasons, we follow his well worn walking boots on a trek through vistas of mountain valleys, glaciers and fjords, as he contemplates life, love, nature and his place in the world.
This unique cinematic experience casts human time in the perspective of natural time, becoming a meditation that rewards big screen viewing.
