Georgia Wyss, Spain, 2017, 85 min.Harmony, healing and shared humanity: a moving portrait of the practice of Kirtan, and the people from all walks of life and cultural traditions who seek inner peace by singing mantras together.
In a film about spirituality rather than religion, we meet a diverse group of participants ranging from Tibetan monks to hip-hop MCs and prison inmates, who offer accounts of Kirtan’s lasting impact on their creative and emotional lives.
