Become a Mantra Movie Screening Captain

Hosting a screening is free and easy, you just need to become a Movie Captain!

Simply follow these instructions. Once you do that, all of us – you, the filmmakers, the GATHR Films network, the artists, and our combined social network – will promote the screening together through our social channels.

You’ll be surprised how quickly your screening seats fill up. You will also receive the benefit of 2 COMPLIMENTARY TICKETS for every confirmed screening you champion.

REQUEST A SCREENING and sign up to become the Movie Captain of a screening at your local movie theater.

This will take you to the Theatrical On Demand® screening request form. Filling out the form takes about five minutes and costs nothing. Once you submit the completed form you will receive a confirmation email from Gathr Films and your screening will be on its way.

REMEMBER: Theatrical On Demand® screenings only happen if a minimum number of people reserve their tickets online in advance. (they call it “Tipping”) This means you can’t wait until the night of the screening to get your tickets so be sure to animate your friends well in advance. You will see your progress as time passes.

We are honored to be supporting partners for this film.

MANTRA – Sounds into Silence is a lovingly crafted, heartfelt documentary film about the growing phenomenon of Mantra music and *Kirtan. Told through the experiences of some of those whose lives have been transformed by the practice, it also features many of the leading artists both in performance and up close & personal.

 

Georgia Wyss, writer, director and producer is the heart and soul of this project. Since discovering the world of Mantra music eight years ago, and recognizing its importance as a new means of healing which could benefit the lives of many, she has been working determinedly to bring this film not only to devotees of Kirtan but also to the wider world.

“When a very close friend of mine became ill and eventually passed, I first discovered how mantra music and the practice of Kirtan could be deeply healing. Back then this music helped me come to peace with something that appeared very difficult to accept. Through this personal experience I became aware of the power of the music, mantras and meditation that are at the core of the practice. 


 
In the following years, I deepened my experience of Kirtan, and I discovered that the essence of it is more than just support in difficult times, it is really about discovering or re-discovering the joys of, and the importance of belonging, in our increasingly atomised world: that sense of community that many of us have lost, or, in some cases, never had. And it’s also about connecting or re-connecting with our selves and with our environment. In our “always-on” world, we seem to have lost that focus. The film will explore this in detail with the aim of de-mystifying the world of Kirtan and sharing the joyfulness of Mantra music.

Accompanying us on this journey, both in performance and in conversation will be artists Deva Premal and Miten, Snatam Kaur, Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Lama Gyurme with Jean Phillipe Rykiel, MC Yogi, C.C. White, Mirabai Ceiba, Dave Stringer, Donna De Lory and more.Please join us by helping in whatever way you can. Namasté”
