Into Great Silence
White Light on Film
In 1984, filmmaker Philip Gröning contacted the Carthusian monks nestled deep in the French Alps about creating a documentary. Sixteen years later they called him back. To capture this rare footage, which resulted in a Sundance Special Jury Prize, Gröning entered this still point of the turning world alone, filming the solitary and contemplative lifestyle of the Carthusians to record an experience of timelessness and silence in which boundaries between movie theater and monastery dissolve.
