“In Pursuit of Silence”
directed by Patrick Shen, 2015, 81 minutes
February 9, 2018 – 7:00pm
“In Pursuit of Silence” is a meditative exploration of our relationship with silence, sound and the impact of noise on our lives. Beginning with an ode to John Cage’s ground-breaking composition 4’33”, “In Pursuit of Silence” takes us on an immersive cinematic journey around the globe- from a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto, to the streets of the loudest city on the planet, Mumbai during the wild festival season – and inspires us to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world.
“Replete with imagery that shimmers with the kind of almost otherworldly wonder one might associate with a Terrence Malick movie… This film does more than just tell a story, it testifies to the sheer loveliness of anything – everything – when drenched in silence.” -The Huffington Post
