Mantra: Sounds Into Silence
Directed by Georgia Wyss
Mantra: Sounds Into Silence
A feature-length documentary, exploring the growing musical and social phenomenon of chanting, MANTRA: Sounds into Silence shares the stories of people who are finding healing and a sense of inner peace by singing mantras together. It’s a film about spirituality not religion, about people reconnecting with their true selves and with others.
The film shows that chanting can have beneficial effects on the brain and in turn, on practitioners’ well-being. As the stories from people from all walks of life and from all over the world unfold, we meet the musicians who have inspired them and brought them together. Through these encounters, we will discover how the artists themselves came to this music and to the practice of Kirtan, and how, over the years, it transformed their lives too.
With performances and contributions from Deva Premal & Miten with Manose, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Jai Uttal, MC Yogi, Dave Stringer, Lama Gyurme & Jean-Philippe Rykiel, C.C. White, Mirabai Ceiba, Gaura Vani, Nina Rao, Charlie Braun, Guru Ganesha, Wah! and more.
“A beautiful film which captures the spirit of a music movement that is now spreading across the world. MANTRA is a must-see for anyone who wants to pause and take a look within.”
“This film fed my soul”
