The Sound of SilenceSound and Cinema
Peter Sarsgaard plays a self-taught scientist who helps clients rid their emotional discord by ‘retuning’ their homes in this off-beat American indie.
Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival 2019, Michael Tyburski’s feature debut centres on the life of a ‘house tuner’ who claims to have uncovered a sonic order beneath New York City’s cacophony. Armed with a satchel of tuning forks and confidence in the infallibility of his theory, his life is upended by Ellen (Rashida Jones) whose troubles don’t seem to fit into his philosophies. The sounds of the city are brought to the fore with intricate sound design in this quiet romantic drama.
