About the Movie
In our race towards modernity, amidst all the technological innovation and the rapid growth of our cities, silence is now quickly passing into legend. Beginning with an ode to John Cage's seminal silent composition 4' 33", the sights and sounds of this film delicately interweave with silence to create a contemplative and cinematic experience that works its way through frantic minds and into the quiet spaces of hearts. As much a work of devotion as it is a documentary, In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative exploration of our relationship with silence, sound, and the impact of noise on our lives.
I loved it!
As someone who craves silence and solitude, I found this film to be very reassuring - that my need is not wrong or a sign of mental illness (as some have suggested), but that in order to thrive in this noisy world, we need silence in order to survive. Beautifully filmed, and very gentle, I puchased this film and will return to it many times, I'm sure. I was also very relaxing, and I slept very well later that night.
