In Pursuit of Silence
$12 General Admission
Producer/Cinematographer Brandon Vedder in attendance!
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.
“…reminiscent of seeing 1982’s Koyaanisqatsi for the first time… Shen’s In Pursuit of Silence incessantly inspires, sometimes takes the breath away, and can even accomplish both at once.” – Wayne Allan Brenner, Austin Chronicle
“Replete with imagery that shimmers with the kind of 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.” – Carl McColman, The Huffington Post
