Director: Philip Groning
Running time: 169 minutes
After a 16-year wait, German filmmaker, Philip Groning, created Into Great Silence from footage acquired during six months of living in the monks quarters of the Grande Chartreuse, one of the world's most ascetic monasteries nestled deep in the French Alps.
Without a crew or artificial lighting, Groning filmed their daily prayers, tasks, rituals and rare outdoor excursions, and what he produced is transcendental filmmaking.
Introduced by Duncan Moss, Lecturer in Clinical Psychology and Buddhist faith advisor at Plymouth University.
