Walk With Me: A Journey Into Mindfulness Featuring Thich Nhat Hanh
Filmmaker Max Pugh, live in-person at the August 20, 7:00 & 7:30 screenings
In May 2011, at the height of this mindfulness boom in the west, Thich Nhat Hanh’s monastics invited filmmakers Marc Francis and Max Pugh into their monasteries to witness the depths of their practice and the essence of their mindful living. By exposing their way of life to the cameras for the very first time, they hoped the film could capture their trials and tribulations and their determination to live a mindful life away from commercial gain.
Through intimate interviews and observational filming, Walk With Me
offers a 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 forever. Honest and heartwarming, Walk With Me
touches on the universal themes of belonging, love, loss, hope and death relevant for not just Thich Nhat Hanh's monks and nuns but for us all.
