SOUND OF PEACE is a cinematic meditation. Utilizing the deep resonance of the didgeridoo - played by Nawang Khechog, a former Buddhist Monk - the film gently, yet powerfully, transforms the viewer's sense of possibility for inner and world peace. A synthesis of viscerally experienced waves of sound and engaging images creates a calm and transcendant experience.
