Gabriel Yared Note
When Niklaus sent me a short 15-minute teaser of his film, I was immediately struck by the beauty and majesty of the images, and inspired by the authenticity of the tribes and the lead actor. I dived into this project straight away, putting all my energy and consciousness into searching for the right music. I thought it was important for me not just to “collaborate”, but to bring all my skills to help defend the film, the tribes, and the forests. Niklaus made so much space for the music, and allowed me the freedom to express the spirit of the forests, and the emotions of the Penan through my composition.
Although we have almost lost these tribes and the forests, we have gained a truly remarkable film, which I hope will make audiences around the world understand and wake up to these important environmental issues. I feel honored to have been a part of this journey, and to have had the wonderful opportunity to write the most beautiful themes I could.
