In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative film about the value of silence, our relationship with sound, and the implications of living in such a noisy world. It is due for global release later this year.
“In our race towards modernity, amidst all the technological innovation and the rapid growth of our cities, silence is now quickly passing into legend. We struggle to hear ourselves think, imagine, and connect with one another. 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.”

We are proud to have supported this fascinating film through its Kickstarter campaign.
“All sounds contribute to our experience of life. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to help spread the word about the contribution of sound to our world and bring the debate to life. In supporting this film, as well as with our work with Imagine Brighton on the Sounds of Brighton, we are truly looking to make a positive difference to the world in which we live.”
– Andy Knowles, Managing Director of Anderson Acoustics
The award-winning Los Angeles-based filmmakers are due to premiere the film at the SXSW festival on 12 March, with other screenings in the US following after that. It is hoped that the film will serve as a catalyst for a global movement towards a better sounding world.
