From Music into Silence


This special event screening of FROM MUSIC INTO SILENCE will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Farshid Akhlaghi and the protagonist of Akhlaghi's film, Peter Roberts.

Let the beauty we love be what we do. -Rumi

For the last 23 years, Peter Roberts has had the most unusual job in Australia. He is the only Australian Music Thanatologist. He plays the harp for people who are facing their last moments of life. Peter’s focus is on the dying process and he helps people to die in peace when often everyone wants them to stay.
With the spirit of the Persian poet “Rumi” running through his veins, Peter has one last task to do before he retires.

Some Persian language, English subtitles.
