German director Philip Gröning lived for six months with the Carthusian monks of the Grand Charteuse, a 17th century monastery in the picturesque French Alps. With no crew, and shooting only in natural light, he followed the renunciates on their daily rounds, capturing the languid flow of days filled with prayer, study and labour. There is no narration, no score, and except for the sounds of the passing days and seasons.
Also showing is "Prayer Silence Labour" a photographic exhibition, by Andrzej Nowakowski and others, showing daily life in the Polish hermitage and will transfer the viewer to the specific world of values and rules of the Camaldolese spiritual life.
