Quiet Place in the Universe
After a summer working in a fish factory and sleeping in a car in Homer Alaska, traveler and filmmaker Tyler Ludowitz took a one way flight to India with nothing but a backpack, a super 8 camera and as little as two hours worth of film. Working with limited celluloid, Ludowitz had to be exceedingly selective with what he shot, sometimes going weeks without rolling the shutter. Quiet Place in the Universe documents his travels as he made his way through Thailand, China, and eventually back to the United States. The film he returned with is intensely brutal, wholly raw, and at times unexpectedly beautiful. Quiet Place sets itself apart by invoking a cinematic experience that is truly D.I.Y. to the fullest extreme.
Quiet Place premiered on December 11th, 2011 at Spectacle Theater, Brooklyn New York.

Tyler Ludowitz is a filmmaker, analog photographer and traveler from Topanga California, born in 1986. After getting his super 8mm camera and film stolen while traveling Europe trying to make his first film, he went back to America determined to make a feature length documentary entirely on 8mm film. After working a summer in a Fish Processing Factory in Homer Alaska, he saved up and bought a one way ticket to India and spent eight months traveling around Asia filming what eventually became Quiet Place in the Universe, his first feature film which was awarded an Exceptional Merit Prize at an The World Global film festival competition and has been called a cult classic and one of the greatest films of all time. He has since gone on to travel over 40 countries in over eight years of traveling. He is currently teaching English in Asia now.
