In Pursuit of Silence (DC Premiere)

Part of the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital, “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 instantly inspires us to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world.

Introduction by Joshua Bell, Curator of Globalization at the National Museum of Natural History. A Q&A discussion with director Patrick Shen and the producer Cassidy Hall follows the program.
