In Search of the Great Song

2016 Best Doc­u­men­tary Win­ner, Moon­dance Int’l Film Fes­ti­val, Boul­der, CO
Sec­ond in the series, fol­low­ing the acclaimed film, Shin­ing Night: A Por­trait of Com­pos­er Morten Lau­rid­sen

In Search of the Great Song (direct­ed by Michael Still­wa­ter & Doris Laess­er Still­wa­ter) explores and cel­e­brates the uni­ver­sal cur­rent puls­ing through all life in spo­ken word, sound and music. From the Aus­tralian out­back to the San Juan Arch­i­pel­ago, from South India to the Swiss Alps the ques­tion asked of peo­ple – faith lead­ers, artists, sci­en­tists, philoso­phers, indige­nous elders and oth­ers – is, “What is the Great Song for you?” Infused with music from around the world, 50 remark­able respons­es cross bor­ders of cul­ture, faith, arts and sci­ence, weav­ing a mul­ti-faceted, time­less tapes­try, a cin­e­mat­ic tes­ta­ment to our com­mon spir­it. This film is a con­ver­sa­tion starter, inspir­ing view­ers to con­sid­er the under­ly­ing cre­ative force in every­one, and to reflect upon their unique con­tri­bu­tion to this Great Song. In Search of the Great Song offers a panoram­ic, con­tem­pla­tive and exis­ten­tial overview of the notion of the Great Song in peo­ple around the world. Fifty voic­es. Twelve coun­tries. One ques­tion.
