Walk With Me - New Clip
To celebrate the release of Walk With Me today at Bertha DocHouse, we have an exclusive clip from the film available for you to watch to whet your appetite.
Walk With me takes audiences inside the secluded monastery of Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, nestled in bucolic countryside in the south of France. The practice of mindfulness, which he pioneered, is built into the daily routine and rituals of the monastic community, which are gently observed by filmmakers Marc J Francis and Max Pugh. Given unprecedented long-term access to absorb life in ‘Plum Village’, they filmed over three years both in France, and on the road in the US, as a group of monks and nuns transport their sedate sense of presence and awareness to the hectic streets of New York.
Benedict Cumberbatch reads extracts of Thich Nhat Hanh’s writings, bringing a sense of the master’s philosophy to this fascinating and refreshing portrait of mindfulness and monastic life, as heard in the clip below.
Walk With Me is screening as part of our Detox Docs Season - book tickets to see the film HERE
