Reel Spirit Movie Project

September Film Discussion

Sound of Metal


On Thursday, Sep. 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Eastern, the Center’s Reel Spirit Movie Project will discuss the next film in our ongoing monthly series, Sound of Metal (2019).

This film won Oscars for sound and editing and garnered nominations for best picture, best lead actor, and best supporting actor. The film masterfully delves the depths of the human condition through the “ears” of a would-be rebel rock drummer in his search for healing, belonging, and acceptance.

For more information about this film, see IMDb here. You can also view the trailer on YouTube here.

The format for discussing films on the Reel Spirit Movie Project is both evocative and engaging. The facilitator for the discussion creates a guide that focuses on key themes in the film, and we send this guide to all registrants. Participants begin by reviewing the film on their own. We follow with a scheduled 2-hour facilitated discussion that the Center will lead and host through Zoom.

The facilitator for Sound of Metal is Terry Decker, a member of the Reel Spirit Movie Project team and a popular repeat facilitator.

There is no charge for this event, but participants are asked to consider a donation to Center for Spiritual Wisdom, a non-profit organization. To make a donation, please go HERE to the CSW website.

To register or receive additional information, please email Cindy Decker at Registrations will be received on a first-come, first-served basis.  After registration, participants will receive information about the film and a dedicated link to join the discussion.

Stay tuned for other movie discussions planned by the Reel Spirit Movie Project, including My Octopus Teacher, our October selection.
