In the Stillness of Sounds

In the Stillness of Sounds

A renowned sound engineer and biologist, Marc Namblard lives with his family – his wife and young daughter – on the edge of a forest in the Vosges mountains in France. During the day (and sometimes at night), Namblard ventures deep into the forest, audio equipment in tow, to capture sounds no one’s heard before: a bee rubbing its legs together, the persistent drumbeat of marching ants, the songs of nocturnal animals, the sound of ice cracking beneath a frozen lake. An magical documentary that asks us to reconsider how we see – and hear – our world, IN THE STILLNESS OF SOUNDS offers a wondrous appreciation of nature’s ecosystem. “I live in a world of sounds,” Namblard says to the filmmakers. This magnificent documentary is testament to that, a mediation on the act of listening and the art of sound. We encourage you to watch it with your eyes closed.
