Second in the series, following the acclaimed film, Shining Night: A Portrait of Composer Morten Lauridsen
In Search of the Great Song (directed by Michael Stillwater & Doris Laesser Stillwater) explores and celebrates the universal current pulsing through all life in spoken word, sound and music. From the Australian outback to the San Juan Archipelago, from South India to the Swiss Alps the question asked of people – faith leaders, artists, scientists, philosophers, indigenous elders and others – is, “What is the Great Song for you?” Infused with music from around the world, 50 remarkable responses cross borders of culture, faith, arts and science, weaving a multi-faceted, timeless tapestry, a cinematic testament to our common spirit. This film is a conversation starter, inspiring viewers to consider the underlying creative force in everyone, and to reflect upon their unique contribution to this Great Song. In Search of the Great Song offers a panoramic, contemplative and existential overview of the notion of the Great Song in people around the world. Fifty voices. Twelve countries. One question.
