Slow down, why don’t you, and breathe. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, this intimate, appropriately contemplative documentary takes us deep inside the monastery of world-famous Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh: the inventor of mindfulness. With unprecedented access to Hanh’s famously secluded monastery in Plum Village in south west France, filmmakers Marc J. Francis and Max Pugh explore what it means to devote your life to the pursuit of higher thought, capturing the daily routines and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to live truly in the present and without attachment to material things. A serene, quietly inspirational film.
