Here is the poster for the new film Oka! directed by Lavinia Currier. The film opens in LA on October 14.

Here's the description of the film from the press materials:

OKA! tells the story of an American ethnomusicologist and his life with the Bayaka people of the Central African rainforest. The movie is partly based on the life’s work of Louis Sarno, who has lived with and recorded the music of the Central African pygmies for over 20 years. The indigenous Bayaka people of the Central African Republic and the Congo are pygmies. They are severely economically and socially marginalized, maintaining a tenuous balance between their traditional forest lifestyle and their increasing assimilation into Central African society. “Oka!” offers a unique glimpse into the music, humor, and spirit of the Bayaka people.
