Thursday evening, February 1st at 7:30 pm, don’t miss a very special screening at the Emelin Theater of the film, In Pursuit of Silence, and post-screening Q & A with the film’s award-winning director, Patrick Shen.
This critically acclaimed film 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, to the silence of forest bathing in Japan, the film inspires us to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world.
Larchmont’s Cheryl Vigder Brause, founder of 2bpresent and local meditation teacher who was involved in the production of this film from its inception to its distribution, is proud to bring the film to our community and will moderate the Q&A and post-screening discussion.
