Here’s a motion picture I want to go see — Into Great Silence, a documentary about the Carthusians, contemplative monks whose lives are profoundly silent and mostly solitary. Go to the website and read the description, it sounds like the director truly respects the nuances of the contemplative life — and captured it, at least as best as can be done given the limitations of film. Watch the trailer.
It will be playing in Atlanta at the Tara Theatre starting April 27. Anyone from around here up for a group outing?
