Walk With Me - Encore Screening - Wed 4th September - Townsville | BCC Cinemas Townsville Central | Wednesday, 04. September 2019

“There is no way to happiness - happiness is the way”. 
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Come on a contemplative journey following in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, and experiencing a rare insight into life within a monastic community. 
The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads extracts from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. Walk With Me is a fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. 
With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. 
Walk With Me an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things, a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.
