A Still Small Voice

Mati is an aspiring chaplain in the midst of a year-long hospital residency. Her journey involves learning to offer spiritual and emotional support to individuals facing profound life transitions. As Mati interacts with patients, battles with professional burnout, and questions her own spirituality, we get a glimpse of the meaningful connections she has with her patients and the toll it takes on her through the observant gaze of Luke Lorentzen’s camera.

An intimate and unflinching look at burnout and the complications of mourning, A Still Small Voice offers viewers unprecedented access to bear witness to resilient medical professionals and patients alike during the height of the pandemic.
