Into Great Silence
I know, lousy translation of “Die Große Stille,” but it’s a wonderful film. I saw it last year at the Seattle International Film Festival. It’s a documentary about the Carthusians at their motherhouse, the Grande Chartreuse. It’s also playing in the US at a city near you. If you go and aren’t up on all things Benedictine, it would be a good idea to read a bit about Carthusian monasticism, since it’s so different from other Benedictine-derived orders.
