Pink Martini frontwoman China Forbes has written and recorded a song for a film, but not just any movie. Rather, her sister Maya wrote and directed the critically acclaimed new film Infinitely Polar Bear, starring Mark Rufallo and Zoe Saldana, which is based on the sisters’ life with their manic depressive father. The song itself is a sweet, gentle little tune, and Forbes was intent on making both the track and the accompanying video as personal as possible. –Popmatters
