    Transforming Silence: The Creative Power of Quiet
  • In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative exploration of silence and the impact of noise on our lives. The film takes the audience on an immersive cinematic journey around the globe—from a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto to the streets of Mumbai, the loudest city on the planet—and invites viewers simultaneously to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world. The film’s Director and Co-Producer will lead discussion after the screening.

    Patrick Shen is a filmmaker and the founder of Transcendental Media. His films have received 24 awards and 11 nominations, and have been featured on the TED blog, CNN, Huffington Post, NY Times, LA Times, Boston Globe, and the Washington Post. In 2009, Patrick was the recipient of the Emerging Cinematic Vision Award from Camden International Film Festival and since 2005, he has presented his work at hundreds of film festivals, cinemas, museums, and major academic institutions all over the globe.

    Cassidy Hall is an author, photographer, filmmaker, podcaster, and trained counselor. Cassidy’s writing has been published in the Convivium Journal, The Thomas Merton Seasonal, and has been featured on The Huffington Post, Patheos, and the National Catholic Reporter. Her pilgrimage of life has continued with visits to other sacred spaces, monasteries, various contemplative locations, and the infinite interior spaciousness within. This ongoing pilgrimage has informed her writing, art, her personal life, and her way of being.
