This contemplative film follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community.

BFI South Bank, London SE1 8XT | From 5 Jan

Slow down and breathe... The sun rises. Everything is calm and still.

Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals...

So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’s fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness.

Also at Curzon Bloomsbury and Picturehouse Central with more to be confirmed.
