I’ve always felt that a picture indeed tells a thousand words, and as a musician I certainly understand the magic it creates as well. But never have I seen a better example than when a friend sent me a link to a Youtube video the other day.
You may have heard the story of a lion named Christian, adopted in the late 60s and eventually re-integrated into the wild, and of the remarkable reunion with his “humans” some time later in the African jungle. In text (follow this link) it is truly a touching story.
Now add video and music… and perhaps grab a box of kleenex first. For me, this is an excellent example of the transformational powers of film and music!
