U.S. born ethnomusicologist Louis Sarno once heard a song on NPR radio that stuck with him. He followed this music to the Central African rain forest — and never returned. Indiewire has the exclusive trailer for director Michael Obert’s "Song from the Forest," which tracks Sarno’s amazing journey from the rainforest, where he met a Bayaki tribe woman and had a child, and back to New York more than 20 years later. 

"Song from the Forest" opens on April 10 in New York and April 17 in Los Angeles. Expansion to additional cities will follow.
