EXPERIENCE THE MILESTONES OF SPIRITUAL LIFE
FROM AROUND THE WORLD IN
Directed by Academy Award-Winner Thomas Lennon
Available on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play Beginning December 11
Arlington, Va. – November 28, 2018 – PBS Distribution announces the release of “SACRED,” a fascinating and intimate look at the importance and power of religion, culture, and spirituality as experienced by people of different denominations all over the world. Directed by Academy Award-winner Thomas Lennon, (The Blood of Yingzhou District, Knife Skills) the film was shot by more than 40 filmmaking teams from around the world and immerses the viewer in the daily use of faith and spirituality.
“SACRED” will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play beginning December 11 and on DVD ($24.99 SRP) December 25, 2018. The program has a run time of approximately 90 minutes.
At a time when religious hatred dominates 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 their lives. The film’s director commissioned or sourced footage from top independent filmmakers from more than 25 countries and a wide range of religious traditions, with each team contributing a single scene. Sweeping in its global reach, yet intensely intimate, the film is a tour de force that unifies the individual moments into a single work, told without narration, without experts and, for long stretches, without words at all.
Also available from PBS Distribution: “SACRED JOURNEYS WITH BRUCE FEILER” and “FRONTLINE: FROM JESUS TO CHRIST: THE FIRST CHRISTIANS.”
