The sound of silence

As much a work of devotion as it is a documentary, IN PURSUIT OF SILENCE is a meditative exploration of our relationship with silence and the impact of noise on our lives. In an increasingly noisy world, silence is a luxury that is getting increasingly hard to find and yet its spiritual and physical benefits are perhaps more valuable now than ever. Featuring interviews with scientists, doctors and monks, the film attempts to explain the central role silence has played – and should continue to play – in human development and culture.
