About the Work

Featuring an adapted, haunting version of Destiny’s Childs 2001 hit song «Survivor», «Save the Survivors» opens with the sad truth that it is based on true stories. The film follows the story of a brother and sister who flee the bombing of their home and embark on a terrifying hunt for safe haven. As their journey throws up perils and violence, the strains of the song’s chorus, “I’m a survivor, I’m going to make it,” can be heard – giving the iconic original song a whole new meaning and gravitas. The original being a punchy anthem to self-belief, this adapted version seamlessly integrate into the storyline, with carefully selected lyrics enhancing it throughout. The adaptation, produced by Ohlogy and re-arranged and performed by Norwegian artist ARY and violinist Harpreet Bansal with a more ghostly, desperate air, the song was originally recorded by the group Destiny's Child and composed by group member Beyoncé alongside Anthony Dent, and Mathew Knowles.
