UCI's Room Gallery continues its film screening series with The Pursuit of Silence, curated by Adrià Julià.  The ad hoc film series starts with Elie Wiesel's assertion that silence has its own bone structure, its own labyrinths and its own contradictions - the assassin's silence being neither the victim's nor the spectator's.  In all 14 films, silence plays a leading role.  Each director introduces the artificial presence or absence of silence to reveal an emotional structure and authority of cinema.
