Accompanied by the narration of Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), WALK WITH ME is a cinematic journey into the world of mindfulness and the master of Zen Buddhism; Thich Nhat Hanh. For three years, the filmmakers were given unique insights into this calm and peaceful community, fully dedicated to the art of mindfulness.
For Thich Nhat Hanh, mindfulness means the consciousness in the present moment, which brings peace and quiet to the mind. This allows a deeper understanding of reality and the emergence of wisdom. Mindful living means knowing oneself and one’s needs, and neither judging nor evaluating.
Spiritual superstar Thich Nhat Hanh has already touched and moved millions of people around the world with his teachings of mindfulness. This documentation continues in that vein. The filmmakers were invited to accompany the monks and nuns both in the French convent and on educational trips in the USA. The quotes and wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh are read by famous British actor Benedict Cumberbatch (THE IMITATION GAME) giving the film a special charm.
Directed and Produced by: Max Pugh und Marc J. Francis
