Sacred

United States,Japan | 2016 | 86 min | Arabic,Burmese,English,French | Thomas Lennon

Shot by more than 40 film making teams around the world, the film immerses the viewer in the daily use of faith and spiritual practice. At a time when religious extremism plagues the world’s headlines, this film explores faith as a primary human experience, and how people turn to ritual and prayer to navigate the milestones and crises of private life.

The film’s director commissioned and sourced footage from top independent filmmakers from more than 25 countries – and a wide range of religious traditions – each team contributing a single scene.

Sweeping in its global reach, yet intensely intimate, 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.

Director Thomas Lennon has been nominated three times for an Academy Award®, winning in 2007.
