"In Pursuit of Silence" is a meditative feature documentary about the value of silence, our relationship with sound, and the implications of living in such a noisy world. From the monastic traditions of the world's religions to the universal practice of the "moment of silence" as an act of mourning, humanity has had a long fascination with silence. Today when one in three Americans suffers from some degree of hearing impairment, this relationship with silence, which once served as the key to our evolutionary sustainability, is challenged more than ever as the world continues to grow noisier. Offering audiences a truly unique cinematic experience, "In Pursuit of Silence" will be just as much OF something as it will be ABOUT something and will use silence and sound to give viewers an experiential and immersive experience.
