Songs of Earth

Co-presented by the
Norwegian Consulate General San Francisco

“A remarkable, poetic meditation, Songs of Earth weaves the smallness of human lifespan into the grandness of the earth’s history, and does it all with unspeakable beauty.”
– Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

With Olin’s 85-year-old father as guide, we experience Norway’s most scenic valley, Oldedalen in Nordfjord. This is where he grew up, and where generations before him have lived in balance with nature. Majestic images of wild mountains, calving glaciers and bustling wildlife go side by side with the parents’ stories about the generations who trod the trails, the relationship we have with nature and what is valuable in life. The music is composed of unique sound recordings – nature’s own melodies, translated and performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra. Executive produced by Liv Ullman and Wim Wenders.
