Into Great Silence

The Grande Chartreuse, considered one of the world’s most ascetic monasteries, is based in the French Alps. This documentary shows life in the Grande Chartreuse monastery, home of the Carthusian Order. Using extended shots, no interviews, and no music other than that of the monks’ own chanting, looks at the monks’ days centered on contemplation, work, and study.
