RATING: NR GENRE: Documentary RELEASE: 2018 DURATION: 85 A feature-length documentary, exploring the new music 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 with others just like them. It’s a film about spirituality not religion, it’s about people reconnecting with their true selves and with others. As our characters’ stories about their connection to the music unfold, we meet the musicians who have inspired them and brought them together. Through these encounters we will discover how Snatam Kaur, Deva Premal & Miten, Krishna Das, Lama Gyurme, Jai Uttal and MC Yogi, amongst others, came to this music themselves and to the practice of Kirtan, and how, over the years, it transformed their lives too. Georgia Wyss, an award-winning editor of feature documentaries including The Light Bulb Conspiracy and A Crude Awakening this is her first film as a director. Here is what she had to say on making her debut. “In our always-on, supposedly connected world, people are increasingly losing the most important connection of all; the one to themselves. I have experienced this disconnection. I have also experienced chanting, also known as Bhakti Yoga or Kirtan, allowed me not only to reconnect on a deeper level with myself, but also helped me through a difficult event in my life, letting go of someone very close to me. As I learnt more about the beneficial effects the practice was having on other people from all walks of life, I resolved to make a film to communicate just that: Kirtan is for everyone and anyone regardless of background, it is the universal language of the heart.”
