Description

Exultant and mind-expanding, Sacred takes you around the world and immerses you in spiritual practices in more than 25 countries. Shot by over 40 filmmaking teams, Academy Award–winner Thomas Lennon orchestrates this immersive and revelatory look at religion in its various forms with a celebratory undertone, offering a refreshingly positive tribute to the universality of faith and belief, whether it’s Buddhist monks in Japan or a woman watering her garden in Vancouver. Visually dazzling, emotionally stirring and gigantic in scope—you’ve never seen anything quite like it.
