Into Great Silence is the first film ever made chronicling life inside the Grande Chartreuse, nestled deep in the stunning French Alps. Founded in 1084, it is considered one of the world’s most ascetic monasteries and home to the Catholic Church’s strictest order. Here the monks dedicate themselves entirely to the service of God and to spiritual life, in permanent silence. One of the most mesmerizing and poetic chronicles of spirituality ever created, this film is a rare, transformative experience for all.
