Storyline

In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative film about our relationship with silence and the impact of noise on our lives. In our race towards modernity, amidst all the technological innovation and the rapid growth of our cities, silence is now quickly passing into legend. From the Desert Fathers of the third century AD who became the model for Christian monasticism to John Cage's seminal work 4'33" which would go onto inspire a generation of artists, humankind has had a long fascination with silence. In Pursuit of Silence will be the first comprehensive look at this topic whose many dimensions lie at the heart of so much of human progress. Offering audiences a contemplative cinematic experience, the sights and sounds of this film will work its way through frantic minds, into the quiet spaces of hearts, and help shape a new vision of being.

Not bad, but it skipped a growing rural noise issue
19 July 2018 | by A.N.See all my reviews

Some people who've never considered the topic could be helped by watching this. Others will find familiar material, but it was well-done.

I'd have liked it to be more of an activist film, rather than a resigned documentation, but I guess that's the way it is.

I was surprised that they only showed a very brief clip of one of the biggest, growing threats to rural silence and visual aesthetics (hint: IWT). Was that political-correctness or an oversight?
