INTO GREAT SILENCE Inside the Famed Carthusian Monastery



Filmmaker Philip Groning lived in the Carthusian quarters for six months–filming their daily prayers, tasks, rituals and rare outdoor excursions. This transcendent, closely observed film seeks to embody a monastery, rather than simply depict one–it has no score, no voiceover and no archival footage. More meditation than documentary, it’s a rare, transformative experience for all. Two discs. Disco one is the Film. Disc Two is Special Features–One hour of additional scenes, Night Office, A guide to the Carthusians and more. 162 Minutes. Minimal French with optional subtitles.
