SONG FOR THE FOREST

Director: MICHAEL OBERT
Louis Sarno, an eloquent and passionate man who has gone to extremes for his beliefs. Drawn to a small village in the Central African Republic after hearing tribal music on the radio, Sarno has largely resided in the Congo since 1985, marrying there and fathering a child. The film hinges on his trip to New York with his son who has never left his small village. IDFA: Best Feature-Length Documentary
