MANTRA – Sounds into Silence is a feature-length documentary that charts the history, expansion and effect of the new music and social phenomenon of chanting. It focuses on the everyday people who are finding healing and a sense of inner peace by singing mantras together with others just like them, but it also features the artists and musicians who are the focus of this new music-based movement. It’s a film about spirituality not religion, it’s about people reconnecting with their true selves and with others, finding meaning in their lives. As our characters’ stories about their connection to the music unfold, we meet the musicians who have inspired them deeply.
