US Theatrical Premiere and Bay Area Exclusive

Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, this beautiful new documentary is a cinematic journey into the world of mindfulness and the Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh. With unprecedented access to Plum Village in rural France, this visceral film is a meditation on a community of people who have given up all their material possessions for the monastic life. Intimate interviews and observational scenes offer rare insight into monastic life and the deeply personal reasons why Thich Nhat Hanh’s monks and nuns decided to leave their families and follow in his footsteps. Oscar-winning filmmaker Alejandro G. Iñárritu calls it, “A moving and wonderful film that captures the essence, depth and poetry of Thich Nhat Hanh- a great work full of love.” Directors: Marc J. Francis, Max Pugh (UK 2017) 94 min.
