A cinematic journey into the world of a monastic community that practices the art of mindfulness with Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh. 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.

Thanks to Dallas Meditation Center, Living Better With Mindfulness and Documentary Events for helping bring Walk With Me to the big screen in Dallas. Donations collected that evening by Dallas Meditation Center benefit the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation.

 

Walk With Me - Dallas Film Screening sponsored by Dallas Meditation, October 17, 2017 SYNOPSIS

"Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch's composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh's early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis' (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one's life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things - a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil."
