Our friend John Tovey supported the creation of this documentary and has encouraged us to facilitate this screening! All proceeds go to the cinema, we’re just encouraging people to see this amazing film.
This contemplative documentary follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.
This special one-time screening of WALK WITH ME is on Thursday November 9 at 6pm at the Roxy Cinema in Miramar, Wellington.
