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. Compiling footage from top independent filmmakers in more than twenty-five countries, Thomas Lennon’s Sacred is a tour de force as he unifies these scenes into a single work. The film is told without narration, without experts and, for long stretches, without words at all.
