Description


Our spring WHAT'S UP? DOCS! series asks the question: "What Do You Believe?" Join us for films and post-screening conversations that seek answers to these central human questions.

On Thursday April 13th, we examine the topic of "Faith" with Thoman Lennon's stunning new documentary Sacred. This screening will be followed by a discussion with several prominent D.C. religious leaders (TBA), moderated by Sister Maureen Fiedler, creator and host of Interfaith Voices.


Synopsis

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

Academy Award-winning director, Thomas Lennon, commissioned or sourced footage from top independent filmmakers from more than 25 countries--and a wide range of religious traditions--each team contributing a single scene. The film, 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.
