SILENZIO: a new film from Gerry Straub

SilenzioPoster1

Silenzio is a film without words. Except for the brief prologue and epilogue, there isn’t even a hint of narration; all you will hear is beautiful, soothing, inspirational music. Moreover, about half the film consists of still photographs. Silenzio is about beauty, stillness, and silence. The sole purpose of the film is to reveal and celebrate the resplendent countryside and medieval towns that Saint Francis of Assisi loved very much. Along the way the film visits many exquisitely beautiful churches whose walls are covered with magnificent, centuries-old art. While the film takes you to the far-flung corners of Franciscan Italy, it is our sincere hope the film brings you to a deeper place of peace and tranquility within yourself. Don’t just watch the film…inhale it.

 

Silenzio is a cinematic tool to help you enter into the stillness and silence that is necessary for a time of meditation. Divided into ten short chapters, the film is not intended to be viewed in its entirety all at once. We hope the viewer only watches a chapter at a time on a daily or weekly basis…to help them quiet the frenetic pace of modern life and to open their eyes to the beauty and sacredness of life. The film is also a cinematic photo-album for anyone who has visited Assisi and wants to recapture the allure and spiritual enchantment of the holy little city that sits on a hill gently inviting visitors to embrace a spirit of contemplation and service.

The film can be ordered directly from the Pax et Bonum Communications website.
