Songs of Earth

Trailer Review

STARR · RHINEBECK

Opens June 7

In this breathlessly poetic exploration of life and death in the Norwegian mountainscape, director Margreth Olin observes the life of her aging father. It is his appreciation for the simple moments of life that take centerstage, as well as the dedicated love of family. It is a film that reminds us of the beauty that is found in simply being present. (dir. Margreth Olin, Norway, 2023, 90m)

“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.” —Vox
