Mantra Film Screening in Danbury
Mar 29, 2018 04:25AM
MANTRA – Sounds into Silence is a new feature-length documentary that charts the history, expansion and effect of the music and social phenomenon of group chanting, also known as kirtan. It focuses on everyday people who are finding healing and a sense of inner peace by singing mantras together with others. It features the artists and musicians that are driving this music-based movement with their performances around the world.
This is a film about spirituality, not religion. It’s about people reconnecting with their true selves and finding meaning in their lives through events held by musicians like Deva Premal, Miten, Manose, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur and others, as well as in local chanting groups spreading across the country.
Miriam Zernis of Connecticut-based Sita’s Light Kirtan is bringing this film to the state on May 16 with a screening to be held at the AMC Theaters in Danbury. A live chanting experience with Zernis and her guest musicians will follow.
