The Center for Documentary Studies and the Southern Documentary Fund present a free screening of director Robin Arcus’s Sacred Sound as part of the Fresh Docs series, which features documentary works-in-progress. Following screenings, SDF director Rachel Raney moderates a conversation with the filmmaker in which the audience participates, providing valuable feedback.

Sacred Sound
Friday, January 30, 7 p.m.

Full Frame Theater, American Tobacco Campus
320 Blackwell Street, Durham, North Carolina

Note that while Fresh Docs screenings are free, all attendees must reserve a ticket via Eventbrite, available beginning at 9 a.m. on the day of the event.

Sacred Sound tells the story of one summer week when fifty ordinary American girls learn to sing extraordinary music in the manner of the great British cathedral choirs. Told primarily through two choristers, these young people take to heart the words of the Mass as not mere words, but the means by which humans relate to heaven. The girls rehearse until they are sure they can distinguish a crotchet from a quaver and discover that they are called to lives of service through music and beyond.

Stay tuned for more news on upcoming Fresh Docs screenings: Chairman Jones on February 27 and Earthcaster on March 27.
