"Purely observational, kinetic cinema and, some might say, even a kind of prayer."
- America The Jesuit Review
Sacred immerses the viewer in an exploration of spirituality across cultures and religions. At a time when religious hatreds dominate the world's headlines, this film, sweeping in global reach and yet intensely intimate, explores faith as primary human experience: how it is used to navigate the milestones and crises of private life. Directed by Academy Award® winner Thomas Lennon and shot around the globe by 40 filmmaking teams.
"A fascinating tapestry of human belief."
- Spirituality & Practice
"A reminder that for millions of people of faith all over the world, religion is about small but significant moments of hope, affirmation and reflection."
- New York Times - Sunday Arts & Leisure
"Intimate...kaleidoscopic...we see personal notes of grace and meaning.."
- New York Times
