Walk With Me (PG)
UK/2017/88mins/PG. Dir: Marc J. Francis, Max Pugh.
With unprecedented access, we go deep inside a Zen Buddhist community who have signed up to a life of chastity for one purpose – to transform their suffering and practice the art of mindfulness with world-famous teacher Thich Nhát Hanh. Filmed over three years, in their monastery in rural France, this visceral film is a meditation on a community grappling with existential questions and the everyday routine of monastic life. As the seasons come and go, the monastics' pursuit for a deeper connection to themselves and the world around them is amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh's early journals. A meditative tale of mindfulness, produced and narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
