Did you know there was a Thich Nhat Hanh documentary? The international trailer was just released and we have it here. Shot over the course of three years, “Walk With Me” is the Thich Nhat Hanh story you haven’t read in his vast collection of inspirational books. The film, directed by Max Pugh & Marc J. Francis, promises “unprecedented access” and a rare look behind the scenes of the community of his followers at the Plum Village monastery in rural France. AND the film’s narration is provided by the velvety-tongued Benedict Cumberbatch. How’s that for a Hollywood name drop?
More about the film:
With unprecedented access, ‘Walk With Me’ is a meditative and intimate insight into a community of Buddhist monks and nuns who have given up all their possessions, left their homes and parted with their life savings for one common purpose – to practice of the art of mindfulness and the teachings of the world-renowned Zen Buddhist Master, Thich Nhat Hanh.
The timing of the film is notable as Thich Nhat Hanh has been reportedly battling health issues over the past few years. The 89-year-old zen master was transported to the U.S. last year for more intense rehabilitation after a stroke in 2014 left him unable to speak. There’s no specific release date announced yet for the film, but the website says 2016 so stay tuned. Maybe it will be around October 11, his 90th birthday.
Here’s the trailer, with BC batch.
