With unprecedented access, WALK WITH ME goes deep inside a Zen Buddhist community who have given up all their possessions and signed up to a life of chastity for one common purpose - to transform their suffering, and practice the art of mindfulness with the world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh.
Filmed over three years, in their 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 insights from Thich Nhat Hanh's early journals, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
"Although beautifully shot with excellent sound quality, I don't know what this film was about. I kept waiting for the b-roll to end and the story to begin. It never happened."
"Wonderful movie about living peacefully, lovingly, mindfully and compassionately wherever you may be and in whatever circumstances. This movie is a very deep breath of fresh air - not only informative but instructional, inspiring, beautiful and life changing. I'm very happy and looking foward to being able to watch and experience this amazing movie on the big screen in my home town of Largo, Florida. Kudos to the Largo 8 Movie Theater for bringing this lovely movie here for us all to enjoy. What a beautiful vision of living life as an expression of the peace we all desire."
