NEW film Walk With Me about Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh comes to Eden Court Inverness on Sunday and Monday.

Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King, Thich Nhat Hanh was exiled from his native Vietnam during the Vietnam war and spent more than 40 years in exile in France.

Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch the film Walk With Me has unprecedented access, and takes viewers deep inside the world-famous monastery of Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh and captures the life of the monastic community there.

Filmed over three years, the film is a meditation on a community and as the seasons come and go, the monastic inner journey is underlined by quotations from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals, narrated by Cumberbatch.

There are also candid interviews with nuns and monks who have decided to leave their families to follow in Thich Nhat Hanh’s footsteps.

The film is showing at Eden Court on Sunday at 5.15pm and Monday at 6.15pm.
