Plum Village is a tiny oasis from the accelerated pace of modern existence. Set among the rolling hills of rural France is a community of Zen Buddhists, led by the legendary Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh. Here, seemingly ordinary tasks such as walking, eating, or sitting alone in thought gain spiritual significance. Calm and contented, the monk’s disciples practice the art of mindfulness.
Immersed in the slow, meditative rhythms of the exiled monk’s monastery, Walk With Me is a touching portrait of Thich Nhat Hanh’s life’s work. Marc J. Francis and Max Pugh's documentary premiered at SXSW - South by Southwest, and the Stockholm International Film Festival.
