Milestones of a Spiritual Life

At a time when religious hatreds dominate the world’s headlines Oscar-winning director Thomas Lennon commissioned 40 independent filmmakers from more than 25 countries to explore faith as a primary human experience and how people turn to sacred traditions to navigate the milestones and crises of daily life.

The result is an immersive exploration of spirituality across cultures and religions sweeping in global reach and yet intensely intimate. Told without narration, without experts and, for long stretches, without words at all, the film draws the viewer into a string of private moments, sometimes for just seconds, at other times in depth. Each filmmaking team contributed a single scene capturing a unique moment in a key passages of life - from a young Muslim father in Egypt chanting the call to prayer for his baby who is only minutes old to coming of age moments in Spain, India and Israel,

The film arcs through marriage and the trials of adulthood through to the rites to those ways which we remember and treasure our dead. An epic and kaleidoscopic cinematic experience.
