Stillwater Community brings Mindfulness to Marcus Oakdale Cinema!
The FEATURE DOCUMENTARY FILM ‘WALK WITH ME’, a cinematic journey into the world of mindfulness and the Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, is playing at Marcus Oakdale Cinema on November 13, 2017, at 7:30 p.m.
The film is brought to Oakdale by a group of individuals who are using a new crowd-sourcing platform called Theatrical On Demand®. Theatrical-On-Demand® allows movie-goers to bring the movies they want to watch to their nearby local theater with no rental cost and no risk.
This screening of WALK WITH ME is being hosted by Still Water Sangha, a community practicing mindfulness and meditation together in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
WALK WITH ME, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, goes deep inside a Zen Buddhist community who have given up all their possessions and signed up to a life of chastity for one common purpose – to transform their suffering, and practice the art of mindfulness with the world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh.
“Heartfelt, if not entirely satisfying, Walk With Me provides an up-close glimpse of the life of devotion, focusing on the monks and nuns who live at a rural monastery led by Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh.” – The Hollywood Reporter
Filmed over three years, in their monastery in rural France and on the road in the USA, this visceral film is a meditation on a community grappling with existential questions and the everyday routine of monastic life.
“A MOVING AND WONDERFUL FILM” – ALEJANDRO G. IÑÁRRITU
