The book Song from the Forest has inspired a major documentary film, premiering in U. S. theaters April 10. The New York Times calls the movie “a deeply captivating visual and sonic exploration of the strange, music-driven life of Louis Sarno, an American ethnomusicologist who was lured to the Congo River basin in the 1980s by recordings of pygmy songs.” Over the decades Sarno has recorded more than 1,500 hours of unique Bayaka music, most of which are held at the Pitt Rivers Museum at Oxford University. Variety writes the film gives "a mesmerizing glimpse into Sarno’s search for a sub-Saharan Walden." Read more on the book here.
