Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Do you have proof that you wrote the music and lyrics and when you wrote them?
Have you gone to seek out the film yet, since you would need to know that information as well to get a local intellectual property law attorney to represent you to sue the filmmaker for using your work without your permission?
