Avon Theatre Documentary Night - Sacred

02/02/2017

272 Bedford St. , Stamford, CT Phone: 203.967.3660.

7:30 pm. Shot by more than 40 filmmaking teams around the world, SACRED immerses the viewer in the daily use of faith and spiritual practice. At a time when religious hatreds dominate the world's headlines, this film explores faith as primary human experience, and how people turn to ritual and prayer to navigate the milestones and crises of private life. Academy Award® winning director Thomas Lennon commissioned or sourced footage from top independent filmmakers from more than 25 countries -- and a wide range of religious traditions -- with each team contributing a single scene. Sweeping in its global reach, yet intensely intimate, SACRED is a tour de force that unifies these scenes into a single work, told without narration, without experts and, for long stretches, without words at all.
