Song From The Forest / IDFA winner

Feature Documentary directed by Michael Obert , edited by Wiebke Grundler,  produced by Tondowski Films & Friends   Best feature Documentary at the IDFA 2013 German DocumentaryAward 2014   The Hollywood Reporter says: “As befits a movie about a man whose life is dedicated to listening, particular attention is devoted to the crafting of intricate soundscapes: Marian Mentrup (Sound Supervisor), Timo Selengia(Location Sound) and Daniel Teige (Sound Design) are arguably the enterprise’s unseen MVPs.”   The IDFA Jury Report: “… one film stepped out. With a lush sound design, tender images, and intimate access, this film explores the legacy of an aging man immersed deep in a rainforest community, where he has recorded thousands of hours of music. By tracing his journey back to the city with his young son, this film poetically asks: as the world changes around us, what do we leave behind? The jury gives the prize for the best Feature length documentary to Song from the Forest by Michael Obert.”
