Doors 1.30pm. Film 2pm. £5pp. 81 minutes. Part of CICCIC’s Mental Health Perspective Programme.
This is the second of a series of documentary films to look at life and mental health from a different perspective. After the film there will be a general discussion on what thoughts and insights you may have gathered from watching the film. Discussions are moderated by CICCIC Director Andrew Knutt.
In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative film about our relationship with silence and the impact of noise on our lives. In our race towards modernity, amidst all the technological innovation and the rapid growth of our cities, silence is now quickly passing into legend.
From the Desert Fathers of the third century AD who became the model for Christian monasticism to John Cage’s seminal work 4’33” which would go onto inspire a generation of artists, humankind has had a long fascination with silence. In Pursuit of Silence will be the first comprehensive look at this topic whose many dimensions lie at the heart of so much of human progress.
Offering audiences a contemplative cinematic experience, the sights and sounds of this film will work its way through frantic minds, into the quiet spaces of hearts, and help shape a new vision of being.

This event is part of CICCIC’s new innovative Night to Day Programme, where you can enjoy events that would normally be on at night but during the day.
This is to ensure that active senior citizens or those with a day off from work can enjoy arts and culture without the hassle of night time issues such as transport or simply prefer not to go out at night.
During 2020 you can find even more great day time events such as live music, film, dance and many more. So be sure to sign up to our email newsletter to stay informed.
