In Pursuit Of Silence (PG)



Documentary (2015)
82mins US/Bel/Chi/Ger/Hong Kong/Ind/Jap/Tai/UK

Director: Patrick Shen

Listings: London | Rest of UK and Ireland

Silence is golden but in a 24/7 hi-tech world that never stops bombarding us with information, moments of tranquillity are increasingly rare. This contemplative documentary celebrates the power of silence, choosing John Cage's seminal composition 4'33" as the starting point for a provocative debate about mankind's fascination with silence and the negative physical and mental effects of being bombarded with sound. Experts and social commentators offer their selective words of wisdom.
