Narrated by Oscar-nominated actor Benedict Cumberbatch, the new documentary Walk With Me takes viewers deep inside a Zen Buddhist community that practices the art of mindfulness with their world-famous teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh.
“Heartfelt … provides an up-close glimpse of the life of devotion.” – Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
Filmed over three years in the Plum Village Monastery in rural France and on the road in the USA, 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 words and insights from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. (Dir. by Mark Francis & Max Pugh, 2016, UK, in English/French/Vietnamese with English subtitles, 94 mins., Not Rated)
