A Quaker Sound

Narrative, 10 min.


Aubrey Joseph in A Quaker Sound.

When his ailing grandmother can no longer attend Meeting, a Quaker teenager raises his voice in a surprising act of thoughtful compassion.

A Quaker Sound aims to show a modern Quaker community in a historic setting. Embracing the Quaker tradition of simplicity, the film tells a simple story about finding an inner light. It reveals not only the relationship between young Elias and his grandmother, but also what attending a Quaker meeting can look like in the present day.

A Quaker Sound was an official selection of the 2017 Provincetown International Film Festival.
