We go in pursuit of the gibbon songs that have captivated poets, scientists and shamans for millennia across the dwindling rainforests of Asia. This feature length documentary is a creative meditation into how gibbons and soundscapes play a fundamental role in the persistence of rainforests, a vital resource for the continuation of humanity on this planet. From Mentawai to China, we blur the boundaries between the real and the surreal, folklore and science and transport participants within the sights and sounds of the rainforest to connect them across geography and time.
