“There is much to learn by those who understand the language of the great silent places,” said Harry Karstens, Denali National Park’s first superintendent, in 1924. That same belief drove filmmakers Patrick Shen and Brandon Vedder to launch a Kickstarter campaign in 2013 with the hope of exploring humans’ relationship to silence, noise, and the natural world. The result? In Pursuit of Silence, a visually luminous documentary coming to select U.S. cities in June.
