INTO GREAT SILENCE - Today's Christian Videos
Embed onecatholic 2789 views 2008-08-23T00:00:00 Nestled deep in the postcard-perfect French Alps, the Grande Chartreuse is considered one of the worldâï¿½ï¿½s most ascetic monasteries. In 1984, German filmmaker Philip GrÃ¶ning wrote to the Carthusian order for permission to make a documentary about them. They said they would get back to him. Sixteen years later, they were ready. GrÃ¶ning, sans crew or artificial lighting, lived in the monksâï¿½ï¿½ quarters for six monthsâï¿½ï¿½filming their daily prayers, tasks, rituals and rare outdoor excursions. This transcendent, closely observed film seeks to embody a monastery, rather than simply depict oneâï¿½ï¿½it has no score, no voiceover and no archival footage. What remains is stunningly elemental: time, space and light. One of the most mesmerizing and poetic chronicles of spirituality ever created, INTO GREAT SILENCE dissolves the border between screen and audience with a total immersion into the hush of monastic life. More meditation than documentary, itâï¿½ï¿½s a rare, transformative theatrical experience for all.
