JOIN ME in New York City for a special screening of this beautiful new film which I am very proud to have been a part of since its humble beginnings . . .

In Pursuit of Silence

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 inspires us to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world.

 

Replete with imagery that shimmers with the kind of almost otherworldly wonder one might associate with a Terrence Malick movie… This film does more than just tell a story, it testifies to the sheer loveliness of anything — everything — when drenched in silence.” -The Huffington Post

I hope you will join me as 2bpresent co-presents a screening on

Monday, June 26th 
7:15 pm
Village Cinema
22 East 12th Street

for an introductory silent meditation, screening of the film, brief Q&A
and post-screening drinks too!
