Yukon Arts Centre

IN PURSUIT OF SILENCE is a meditative exploration of our relationship with silence, sound and the impact of noise on our lives. Beginning with an ode to John Cage’s ground-breaking composition 4’33”, In Pursuit of Silence takes us on an immersive cinematic journey around the globe– from a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto, to the streets of the loudest city on the planet, Mumbai during the wild festival season – and inspires us to experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world. In English and Japanese with English subtitles. “Replete with imagery that shimmers with the kind of almost otherworldly wonder one might associate with a Terrence Malick movie… This film does more than just tell a story, it testifies to the sheer loveliness of anything — everything — when drenched in silence.” The Huffington Post Screening preceded by a performance of 4’33” by Scott Maynard. Described by Exclaim! as ‘a one man broken social scene’, Scott Maynard continues to explore his musical horizons, with recent forays into Baroque, bluegrass, punk, jazz, new wave, reggae, and electronica. Scott has become a familiar figure in the Whitehorse music scene since moving here in 2012.
