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.
