Synopsis

At a time when religious hatreds dominate the world’s headlines, Sacred explores faith as primary human experience: how people turn to ritual and prayer to navigate the milestones and crises of private life. The film’s director commissioned or sourced footage from top independent filmmakers from more than 25 countries, each team contributing a single scene. The film 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. Director Thomas Lennon has been nominated three times for an Academy Award, winning in 2007.
