Echoes of the Invisible

Echoes of the Invisible

"Echoes of the Invisible" interweaves a mosaic of profound quests. A blind man runs alone
through Death Valley as journalist Paul Salopek walks 21,000 miles across the world to
retrace our ancestors' migration. Photographer Rachel Sussman struggles to capture the
oldest living organisms on the planet while astronomers and physicists attempt to
penetrate the furthest depths of time. These ambitious explorers, alongside monks
journeying to the earth's furthest reaches, are connected through their tireless search to
touch the human heart in a world of noise and division.
