Sa­cred

The Week (US) - - Arts -

The sa­cred is ev­ery­where—at least in the world cap­tured by this lyri­cal doc­u­men­tary from di­rec­tor Thomas Len­non. More than 40 film­mak­ers around the globe agreed to con­trib­ute short films about re­li­gious rit­ual, and they’ve been woven to­gether so that we see how peo­ple ev­ery­where sacral­ize life’s ma­jor pas­sages. The sto­ries are told by the par­tic­i­pants them­selves, or with no nar­ra­tion at all, and that in­ti­mate ap­proach un­der­scores how much all of us have in com­mon. Mon­day, Dec. 10, at 10 p.m., PBS; check lo­cal list­ings
