A beautiful documentary, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, about Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh who introduced mindfulness to the West.

A beautifully calming documentary about Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and his teachings of mindfulness. Since his exile from Vietnam, Hanh has lived in a community in Plum Village in south west France from where he introduced the concept of mindfulness to the western world. With narration and extracts from Hanh’s journals read by Benedict Cumberbatch, this is an insightful mediation on the meaning of happiness and the wonder of nature and silence.
(2017 UK 94 mins Part subtitled)

One of the most calming documentaries you’re likely to ever see … is a thoroughly meditative piece cinema, using atmosphere created from still images of monks and nuns in silence and strong sound design of the world around them. It doesn’t have characters so much as recurring faces, and only in the second half does it start to reveal where these people, from all different walks of life and countries, had originally existed. They all now live in a clear, very curious state of contentment.  Nick Allen, rogerebert.com
