Songs of Earth

December 3, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

On Sunday, December 3rd, at 7pm at the Museum of the Rockies, the Bozeman Doc Series continues with the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, Songs of Earth.

It does not get much bigger than ‘Songs of Earth’. Margreth Olin has created a stunning, cinematic work about life, death, nature and about simply being present in the world. With her native Norway’s dizzyingly beautiful mountain landscapes as its monumental backdrop, Olin embarks on an existential journey with her own ageing parents as the human yardstick out in the vast expanses. Here, their family has always lived side by side with nature. Even when the earth’s primordial forces have shown their most merciless side. Her parents’ love and lifelong loyalty bear quiet witness to how surroundings and inner space resonate with each other. But not even the most rock-solid mountain is unchanging – and certainly not in times like ours. The level of detail in Olin’s lyrical and visionary poem to her homeland is almost beyond anything seen on the big screen. And that is most definitely where ‘Songs of Earth’ should be experienced.

“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

“Margreth Olin’s Songs of Earth, executive produced by Liv Ullman and Wim Wenders, is a many-splendored thing: a home movie worthy of IMAX theaters.” RogerEbert.com

“Moving through the four seasons from spring to winter, there is the feeling that the ground is always shifting beneath one’s feet, but Olin affords the precious opportunity to stand still and take things in, entranced by the majesty of nature and all too conscious of its transience.” The Moveable Feast

The screening will be held in the Hager Auditorium at the Museum of the Rockies. Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are available at the door or before the show online at www.bozemandocseries.org, where you can also buy Season Passes and 7-film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films. The series will continue every other week through April, 2024.
