    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 critically 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.
