Walk With Me
With unprecedented access, ‘Walk With Me’ takes us deep inside the world-famous monastery of Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and captures the life of a monastic community who have given up all their possessions for one common purpose – to practice the art of mindfulness.
Filmed over three years, this visceral film is a meditation on a community determined to develop a deep sense of presence, not just for themselves but for all those they love.
As the seasons come and go, the monastics’ inner journey is amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
"You may not come out of [Francis' and Pugh's] documentary wishing to join Plum Village, but the filmmakers leave you desperately wanting more time with it."
"Walk with Me makes for a unique documentary spectacle, especially as it explores the power of silence and clarity."
"...a moving examination of mortality and life choices."
