Walk With Me is a documentary that peers behind the mysterious curtain of a mindfulness-practicing monastery in rural France

Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch

This contemplative documentary follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and provides a rare insight into life inside a monastic community. Everything is peaceful as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins this 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 South West France, Walk With Me captures the daily life and rituals of monks and nuns on a mission to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful exploration on the pursuit of happiness, living in the moment and our attachment to material things, and a welcome antidote to the pressures of everyday life and a world in chaos.
