Available on Crave TV.


Awards and Festivals

Oscar Nominees Tim Roth (The Hateful Eight ) and Clive Owen (Closer) star in this emotional detective story spread over two continents and half a century. Beneath the film’s stunning and emotional musical revelation burn the horror of a war and the lost souls extinguished from history.  A bold journey through friendship, betrayal and reconciliation culminating in the titular Song of Names, the film shows that within the darkest of mysteries sometimes only music has the power to illuminate the truth, heal and redeem.
