Watch the Trailer: https://vimeo.com/311332344Details and Tickets: https://wwm230.eventbrite.co.uk“There is no way to happiness - happiness is the way”. - Thich Nhat HanhCome on a contemplative journey following in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, and experiencing 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 extracts from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. Walk With Me is a 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. Walk With Me 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.Reviews“It is a relief, and a palate cleanser, to watch a documentary concerned with quietness, stillness and contemplation”. - The Guardian“Becomes a moving examination of mortality and life choices”. - Village Voice“Walk with Me makes for a unique documentary spectacle, especially as it explores the power of silence and clarity”. - RogerEbert. comInvestment:A portion of your ticket purchase supports the film makers!
