Responding to the increase of noise pollution, a 'major environmental and public health burden' according to the World Health Organization, In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative exploration of our relationship with silence, sound and the impact of noise on our lives. This critical acclaimed documentary takes us on an immersive cinematic journey around the globe - from Denali National Park in Alaska to a forest outside of Tokyo, where a researcher studies the impact of silence on urban dwellers - and instantly inspires us to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world.

A very good look at how noisy our everyday environment is, and the negative side effects. Plus, the wonderful quality of silence. I had just read an article about how songbirds suffer from PTSD because in many cases their habitat is too noisy for them to hear each other calling.
