The Guardian★★★★☆

SACRED

SACRED was shot by more than 40 filmmaking teams around the world. The film immerses the viewer in the daily use of faith and spiritual practice around the world. At a time when religious hatreds dominate 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. Director Thomas Lennon has been nominated three times for an Academy Award, winning in 2007.

“Sacred, an understated documentary is a reminder that for millions of people of faith all over the world, religion is about small but significant moments of hope, affirmation and reflection." Neil Genzlinger - Film review I The New York Times ★★★★☆

COMPLETED 2016
